Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh will talk on "Water, Fossil Fuels, Habitat and Sustainability in Palestine". Prof. Qumsiyeh will explore how the crucial diversity found in the landscape of Palestine is being damaged as a result of the current situation.  Restoring both social and natural ecosystems to balance requires challenging the Israeli occupation and dominance of the West Bank.  As a Palestinian Christian, a biologist and a human rights activist, Prof. Qumsiyeh is uniquely positioned to explore these inter-linked questions. Prof. Qumsiyeh teaches and conducts research at Bethlehem University in Palestine. He is founder and director of the Palestine Museum of Natural History,and the Institute for Biodiversity and Sustainability.
