How can we combat the rise of extreme poverty across the globe? KCTS 9 and Cascade Public Media invite us to explore this question through the human stories and firsthand accounts of acclaimed travel writer Rick Steves. Returning to Town Hall’s stage, Steves joins us for a screening and discussion of his new one-hour documentary special Hunger & Hope: Lessons from Ethiopia and Guatemala.
Steves reveals key stories from these nations about the importance of water, education, empowering women, and nutrition during a child’s first 1,000 days. See firsthand the impact of globalization and the effects of climate change, and witness the challenges faced by over 700 million people struggling to live on less than $2 a day. Join Steves to experience the act of travel as a classroom, and learn about the innovative solutions and smart development aid fighting to end world hunger.
