UDaily: Brazilian activist, legislator and statesman to speak at Mitchell Hall in DENIN Dailogue

The Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) will host Brazilian activist, legislator and statesman Fabio Feldmann as part of its DENIN Dialogue speaker series on Friday, Oct. 30, from 4–5:30 p.m. Feldmann has devoted his life to protecting and improving the environmental sustainability of his native Brazil, a goal he has relentlessly pursued in every possible arena, from business to politics to nonprofit advocacy organizations.

His visionary leadership has left its mark on Brazilian law and society and on the world stage. He is a winner of the United Nations' Global 500 award, which recognizes the environmental achievements of individuals and organizations around the world.

Feldmann will be interviewed onstage at Mitchell Hall by Dan Parke, the director general of Agência Estado, Latin America’s largest real-time news agency, based in São Paulo, Brazil. Parke is a University of Delaware alumnus and member of DENIN’s external advisory board.
