Greetings Vermont RPCVs,


On October 22nd (Wednesday) UVM and Peace Corps will be hosting an Around-the-World event up at UVM. There will be 25 tables for RPCVs to create simple displays about their service country and we will invite the general public, UVM folks, and Peace Corps folks to attend.


This is the evening schedule of events- the Around the World event is the second one listed:


6:30 P.M. – 7:45 P.M. : Round-Table - International Development and the Role of the Peace Corps. Questions to be considered include: What are the most effective methods of promoting economic development around the world? What should be the role of the U.S. in promoting economic development? What is the role of the Peace Corps in this? What have been personal experiences of the participants in this regard? How can new challenges such as health risks and terrorism be best addressed? This conversation will be moderated by Governor Howard Dean with three Coverdell Fellows, including audience Q&A (Room 216, Living and Learning Complex at UVM).


7:45-9:00 P.M.: Reception for Governor Dean with Coverdell Fellows, returned PCVs and audience – combined with Peace Corps Around-the-World event with Returned Peace Corps volunteers hosting information tables featuring countries of service (Fireplace Lounge, Living and Learning Complex at UVM).
