G20 Peoples Summit Week: The Impact of Over 30 Years of
Globalization and Neoliberalism on the Northern Appalachian Region

IUP students organized a symposium that served as an arena for discussing community needs and developed relationships with those who are addressing global problems on a state and local level. The project also served both the IUP Center for Northern Appalachian Studies and the ATP, thereby increasing their collective visibility within the university and Northern Appalachia as a whole. The students contacted stakeholders who spoke to the issues of gender, race, immigration, health care, public education, public libraries, transportation, and the environment for their participation. They also developed and implemented strategies for promoting the event both to the university and the external community; coordinated the logistics needed for setting up the event; conducted research, compiled bibliographical information, created literature tables; and documented and disseminated proceedings to the funding agency and interested parties. In addition to these activities, the symposium helped the students identify a participating organization for establishing a deeper relationship with the ATP, documented its status, and developed preliminary approaches to assist in addressing the establishments needs.
