EarthLab’s mission is to push boundaries to develop innovative, just and equitable solutions to environmental challenges and climate action. We do this by connecting across sectors and academic disciplines to inspire and incentivize new partnerships that bridge the UW and the wider community. We push boundaries to identify problems, inspire and incentivize new partnerships, honor multiple knowledge systems, take risks and support solutions that show promise.
Research and experience shows the complexity of human-environmental issues requires interdisciplinary and community-engaged cooperation. The EarthLab Innovation Grants Program seeks to invest in teams of University of Washington researchers, students and partners from the wider community to co-produce meaningful solutions and strategies addressing environmental issues.
