Dr. Robin Mazumder
The Eco Gala is proud to welcome Dr. Robin Mazumder as our keynote speaker for the evening. Dr. Mazumder is an environmental neuroscientist who studies how the social and physical environments in which we live intersect to influence how we feel and function.
His passion for his research and advocacy is inspired by his experience navigating his own mental health challenges. Robin believes in the human potential for growth and healing, and sees the design of our cities as playing a central role in these processes.
Dr. Mazumder will be taking your questions live, and promises to deliver a keynote address that will leave you filled with inspiration.
