An Urban Majority: Responses to Deepening Hunger and Poverty in the World's Burgeoning Cities
2011 HNGR Symposium
Funded by the John Deere Foundation
The world's burgeoning cities necessitated this year's symposium, which explored the link between rapid urbanization, poverty, and hunger, and sought to highlight development initiatives that improve urban life by providing access to opportunities and basic resources. Our plenary speaker, Oya Hazel Gumede, LL.M. a rising young leader, explored the challenges of urban life in her native South Africa as well as creative solutions that make hope possible in those contexts.
