This four-hour workshop for faculty at Penn State is a starting point for building new collaborative projects. It will feature brief reports from the many initiatives at Penn State that seek to mitigate the effects of climate change through reducing ghg emissions, whether by sequestering carbon, managing soil and forests, building alternative energy infrastructure, encouraging conservation, or other means. It will also include work being done in the humanities, arts, and other fields to begin exploring collaborative possibilities.
The central goals for this workshop are to:
- Highlight the work already being done by PSU faculty, staff, and students;
- Encourage collaboration among the conference participants, the broader University community, and the Commonwealth;
- Promote incorporation of Arts, Humanities, and Ethics perspectives;
- Incentivize the realization of new collaborative projects.
The workshop will be free, though advanced registration is required, and space is limited. All faculty are welcome to help brainstorm with us, even those who do not yet know how their interests and expertise might fit in.
