Professor guest lectures at the United Nations 2015 Millennium Campaign and Advocacy Workshop
November 16, 2010
Dr. Payne was an invited guest lecturer and leader for the United Nations 2015 Millennium Campaign and Advocacy Workshop in Lisbon, Portugal, Nov. 10 -12. The U.N. Millennium Campaign was launched in 2002 to support civil society's efforts to hold political leaders accountable for the promises they made at the UN in 2000, to create a world without extreme poverty, where all citizens have access to education and healthcare - a sustainable world. These commitments were translated in specific targets: the Millennium Development Goals, that must be in place before 2015. This is the second year Dr. Payne was invited to lead the advocacy workshop.
In mid-November 2014, Professor Edelstein will Skype in as a co-presenter with colleague, Dr. Sky Marsen, (Fiji) who collaborated with her last Fall when their students worked together cross-culturally. The conference will take place in Ploieşti, Romania and is titled, The Dialogue of Cultures / The Culture of Dialogue.
