1) Arboretum Walk: A Prairie Birthday
Join this free naturalist-led hike. We will walk the trails of Curtis Prairie — the oldest restored prairie in the world — to see blazing stars, prairie grasses in bloom and many species from the sunflower family giving the prairie a yellow hue.
When: Sunday, July 20th @ 1pm
Location: Visitor Center, UW-Madison Arboretum
2) The Influence of Electronic Communications on Social Change in Kazakhstan
The increasing role of electronic government has gone hand-in-hand with the growing demands for transparency and accountability in all regions of the world. Kazakhstan is not an exception. One of the important functions of electronic government is reducing the risk of corruption. E-government creates “transparent communication” that allows citizens to apply directly to the government through the internet, remove officials as mediators, and thus reduce the risk of administrative corruption.
When: Tuesday, July 22nd @ 4pm
Location: Room 2190 Grainger Hall
