Interdependence Day 2019 To Take Place at the University of Scranton

Posted by Erika Funke on

Since the founding of Interdependence Day in the wake of the devastation of 9/11, there have been observances in Rome, Paris, Mexico City and many other places, to acknowledge the interdependence of the world and its inhabitants in the 21st century. Sondra Myers, Senior Fellow for International, Civic & Cultural Projects at the University of Scranton, was a co-founder of Interdependence Day, and she coordinates the annual commemoration in Scranton. 

Sondra paid a visit to the VIA studios to talk with Erika Funke about the event, which includes a panel discussion titled "Climate Change: What Can We Do?" on Thursday, September 12 at 5:30 in Brennan Hall at the University of Scranton.  There is no admission charge.  For more information, visit their website.
