The speaker was very engaging and well prepared. My one criticism is that the talk didn't address the title topic "Ending Extreme Poverty without Endangering Ecosystems". Based on the research presented (which was very limited in the field) the connection between poverty alleviation and ecosystem destruction isn't clearly understood. It is known almost inherently but not truly quantified.
Engaging and thoroughly enjoyable. The presentation and then polling using Kahoots was very informative. I thought the film, Die goettliche Ordnung, was super at depicting the 1970's in Switzerland and had a number of moments of humor.
The seminar started off very slow and Dr. Christensen said “uh” in between almost every other word, but once the presentation got going he got into his rhythm (I guess) and was much more engaging. The data presented was very concerning and interesting.
This presentation was very informative. A tough but necessary subject to go over. Was happy to see so many men and women attend. It was suprising to hear some of the statistics and am glad to know that this issue has been taken seriously.
The presentation was very enlightening, and the speaker did a great job presenting the information. The only think I would change for similar future events in that room is to somehow make what is projected on the big screen more visible by turning down the lights more.
Thanks to the School of Social Work for providing this opportunity to stay current on matters involving race relations.
