On Oct. 28, the Ecological Economics class at the Downtown Milwaukee campus, taught by James Carpenter, displayed the United Nations flag on the second floor of the S-Building atrium.

This was U.N. week and was being observed around the city by other schools along with City Hall. The class is studying the role of the U.N. because the U.N. is trying to create a global, economic ecological program that has sustainable goals.

Carpenter spoke to his class about the U.N.’s work. He said the U.N. is working with developed nations to stabilize or bring down underdeveloped nations’ populations to  reduce world poverty.

The U.N. is working on responsible consumption by all nations. It is working with wealthier nations to assist the poorer nations to better develop their resources and to give a better standard of life to the impoverished nations.

Carpenter wants his students to draw from this and wants to show them how they can make changes in their everyday lives.
