Japan: One Year Later

On March 7, join the Pace Community in reflecting on last year’s catastrophic disaster in Japan as a Pace professor delivers a stunning eyewitness report of his recent trip to Fukushima.

Nearly a year ago, following the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant began spewing radioactive contamination into our water, air, and soil.

On March 7, Project Pericles and the Center for Community Action and Research present Japan: One Year Later from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in W612 in One Pace Plaza on the NYC Campus.

Dyson professor and author of Ecology and Socialism: Solutions to Capitalist Ecological Crisis, Chris Williams, who recently traveled to Fukushima, will discuss the aftermath of Fukushima and share the catastrophic consequences of the largest industrial disaster in human history.

You can also read how other Pace professors and students weighed in on the crisis in the weeks after in our special Pace Perspectives series.
