A Discussion on the Legacy of the Vietnam War and Opportunities to Take Action

On February 27th, join us for a discussion with Dr. Giebel to address the issues facing countries coping with landmines and unexploded ordnance and how the legacy of war continues to affect people. Dr. Giebel will talk about underlying issues, long-term effects, and contemporary remedial efforts. PeaceTrees Vietnam will also be sharing opportunities to become involved with this effort. In partnership with the University of Washington Southeast Asia Center.

Dr. Christoph Giebel is an Associate Professor of International Studies and History at the University of Washington. He leads a UW study abroad trip to Vietnam where students visit PeaceTrees projects.

PeaceTrees community members, students, and anyone interested in taking action in this effort is welcome to join!
