May 20, 2011

Julianne Warren, who teaches in NYU’s Global Liberal Studies Program, was among the featured speakers at this year’s Model United Nations international conference, held in mid-May at the UN and New York City’s Grand Hyatt hotel.

Warren is the author of Aldo Leopold’s Odyssey, which chronicles the ideas of the 20th century American forester and father of game management. She incorporates scientific understanding with personal and cultural elements in her environmental studies courses.

NYU’s Global Liberal Studies Program, which was among the sponsors of the 2011 Global Classrooms® Model UN Conference, arranged for faculty and other speakers to participate in the conference on the topic of sustainable forestry and for its students to serve as communications staffers.

The UN has designated 2011 as the International Year of the Forest in order to raise awareness of sustainable management, conservation, and development of forests.
