A practical and open discussion between Haitian and Dominican thought leaders focused on the environment as a uniting concern towards the creation of a bi-national sustainable development framework. After the webinar the YIA will convene a working group for those interested in continuing the discussions.
The dialogue was locally organized by Gerald McElroy, Yale ’09 (Haiti) and Anton Tejeda, Yale ’88 (Dominican Republic).
