The Center for the Study of Art, Architecture, History & Nature (C-SAAHN)
Sponsored the following presentation:
Downtown Library 2009 - 2010 Noon Hour Lecture Series
"Imagining Buffalo Niagara in the 21st Century"
This lecture is part of the "Imagine Buffalo Niagara in the 21st Century" series
sponsored by C-SAAHN. Kerry Mitchell has served as Manager of the
Political/Economic Relations and Public Affairs Program at the
Consulate General of Canada in Buffalo since 1989. The presentation
outlined several unique cooperative initiatives that have taken place
in the Niagara Region between the USA and Canada, both before and since
9/11. An example would be the !909 -2009 Boundary Waters Treaty.
Mitchell, speaking for herself, promoted the idea of seeing a portion
of our region as "The Niagara International Peace Park," and perhaps
receive UNESCO recognition. This would follow a long list of historical
events which involved peace initiatives in the Niagara region.
This presentation helps define the term bi-national.
