Cultivating Environmental Awareness

While technical innovations are needed to address grand challenges such as climate change, environmental health and shrinking biodiversity, their adoption relies on people who understand the science behind complex environmental challenges, care about the issues, and are motivated and equipped to work toward solutions. Our faculty work to build environmental literacy in a host of contexts, bringing together faculty from across campus to study how to connect children to nature, integrate nature-based learning in our schools, leverage citizen science to inspire people to connect with the natural world, and empower youth to inspire communities toward sustainable solutions.
