Stephen Lewis’ talk (entitled “World Issues – Local Impact”) will provide insight into his role as the U.N. Special Envoy for the HIV Pandemic in Africa, and how this role relates to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. He submits that universities are, first and foremost, centres of academic excellence and academic inquiry. But if they are to be relevant to the modern world, they must be familiar with the nature of their own community. In essense, knowledge of this local community is crucial to the understanding of ones obligations to the wider world. Mr. Lewis will explore these themes, drawing on personal experience to make his case.
