How do we effectively communicate climate change to coastal communities across diverse cultural and political landscapes around the world? This is the urgent question that IGERT Fellow, Kelly Luis, sought to answer at the recent Climate Engagement Program workshop at the University of California in Santa Cruz. As part of the program, Kelly was trained to effectively engage audiences to enact potential climate change solutions. As part of the program, Kelly created her own climate engagement plan and will spend the year putting her plan into action, receiving support from UC Santa Cruz along the way.
“I am extremely humbled to be a part of the first cohort of UCSC Climate Engagement Fellows. Every individual in the program valued effective and meaningful engagement, which fostered brilliant and inspiring discussions throughout the workshop. ” -Kelly Luis, Cohort 2016
