Please join the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington for their annual Conservation Summit on August 12th and 13th, as they celebrate and amplify voices of the next generation of conservation. Through recorded presentations to be made available on August 12th, DDCSP@UW scholars in their final year will share their journeys in conservation and, most recently, their experiences in internships with partner organizations across Washington. On August 13th, scholars will participate in live streamed and interactive panel discussions.
Last month, three UW researchers representing two EarthLab organizations presented at the 2022 UN Ocean Conference. Their research centered around ocean equity and access to data. Curious to learn more? Watch the presentation recordings below:
Virtual webinar on ocean equity from Ocean Nexus Center
The Ocean Nexus-led side event introduced a new framework to showcase the development and transmission of Procedural Key Performance Indicators (PKPI), that guide sustainable development efforts in oceans to contribute to reducing social inequity and inequality. Eight Nexus fellows and postdoc researchers within the Ocean Nexus network will present their work on feminist epistemology, ocean’s climate justice, social impacts of marine conservation, racial history of US fisheries and ocean plastic policy in Italy.
In-Person event on access to data moderated by Washington Ocean Acidification Center
The University of Washington’s Washington Ocean Acidification Center and Ocean Nexus Center hosted a side event “Ocean Acidification: Co-designing data connections to underserved communities for equitable outcomes” during the United Nations Ocean Conference in Lisbon, Portugal, on June 30th, 2022. The event highlighted successful partnerships with Indigenous, Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and other underserved communities on co-designing activities for adaptation and response strategies.
On May 5, 2022, EarthLab had a virtual conversation with Leah Thomas, founder of the Intersectional Environmentalist organization. This event recording features Leah reading an excerpt from her new book, “The Intersectional Environmentalist: How to Dismantle Systems of Oppression to Protect People + Planet,” and her answering questions from the audience. You can watch the full recorded event here.
About the Event
As a UN registered Research & Independent Non-Governmental Organization (RINGO), UW sent three official delegates to the UN Climate Change Conference, known as COP 26. These delegates were UW’s three “observers” participating in the meetings, appointed by the Office of Global Affairs.
EarthLab and the Office of Global Affairs have invited the three UW delegates to communicate with the broader UW community their reflections on the global conference and what we – as a university and as individuals – might do to follow up.
