CLIMATE WINS

So much of our media is mired in gloom and doom–and don't get us wrong, there's a lot to be wary of when it comes to our fight for a just, livable future in the face of intensifying injustices and climate change. But, there's also SO much good work being done, too, that rarely gets highlighted. We've added this "climate wins" section to our weekly newsletter to counterbalance the bad news and reinvigorate our community in this good and hard work by celebrating wins.

If you've got a climate win you're excited about, big or small, email us at sustainable.dartmouth@dartmouth.edu, and we'll include it in next week's newsletter! According to the IPCC, every action that prevents further degrees of global warming, no matter what scale, is meaningful.

 

OTHER EVENTS

Below, find events from other campus organizations related to sustainability, climate, and social justice!


ADVANCING SCIENCE BY CONSIDERING UNCERTAINTY: COASTAL CLIMATE SOLUTIONS
Monday | 4:30PM | Haldeman 041
  • This talk, sponsored by the Dickey Center and the Institute of Arctic Studies, will discuss the importance of developing specific methodologies or explanatory models before we even start the process of science. Dr. Eduard Ariza Solé will share his perspectives in the context of coastal climate solutions. By integrating different knowledge systems, it will ensure that the dialogue of different parties – stakeholders, rights holders, and knowledge holders – are included in the discussion. This talk not only notes new ways to develop research questions that are more inclusive in addressing complex global challenges, but share case studies of ongoing work to advance more sustainable, ethical, and inclusive management and governance of coastal areas in a time of rapid climate change.

  • The event will also be live-streamed. See more information and register here.
