People’s lives and livelihoods depend on science. But when those lives and livelihoods are threatened by impacts of a changing climate, how many of us know a scientist we can turn to who can help us protect our communities?
Community Science happens when lay people and scientists do science together to advance community priorities. Natasha Udu-gama is Director of AGU’s Thriving Earth Exchange, which connects communities with scientists and supports them as they work together to tackle local challenges related to natural hazards, natural resources, and climate change. Thriving Earth Exchange has launched over 250 projects in over 15 countries since 2013. Daniel Wildcat is a professor at Haskell Indian Nations University and serves on the steering committee of Rising Voices, a network of tribal and community leaders and earth scientists that bring Indigenous and earth sciences into partnership. Angela Chalk is an AGU Community Science Fellow and Executive Director of Healthy Community Services in New Orleans.
How can scientists and community leaders work together to solve local and global problems?
Join Climate One Host Greg Dalton in this special, in-person conversation with Udu-gama, Wildcat, and Chalk, presented in collaboration with AGU at The Commonwealth Club of California.
