Center for Global Studies: Cosponsored Events
Chai Wai is Hindi for "tea or something like that" and is the name of an event series organized by the International and Area Studies Library at Illinois. Chai Wai events give the campus and community an opportunity for enlightened conversation on important global issues. The conversation will be informed and guided by a moderator, presentations from stakeholders on the issue at hand and discussions with attendees.  On June 6, from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. the Mortenson Center for International Librarianship, the UNESCO Center for Global Citizenship, and the International and Area Studies Library of the University of Illinois, with support from the Center for Global Studies, is presenting a program entitled - “Why UNESCO Matters: Libraries and Information for All”.   A panel of speakers from Barbados, Jamaica, Korea, Nigeria, and Pakistan address the impact of UNESCO’s Information for All People program as we continue to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Mortenson Center.  The event will be held in Room 101 of the International Studies Building, 910 South Fifth Street, Champaign.  Accompanying our lively conversation will be tasty chai, lemonade, coffee and cookies. This Chai Wai event is sponsored by the University Library, the Mortenson Center, and the Center for Global Studies in cooperation with the UNESCO Center for Global Citizenship.
