Members and Affiliates
EarthLab Member Organizations and Affiliates are key to bringing our mission to life. Together, we focus UW expertise to address large-scale environmental challenges in order to make a positive impact on people’s lives and livelihoods.
Climate Impacts Group
Since 1995, the Climate Impacts Group has provided the fundamental scientific understanding, data, tools and guidance needed to help decision makers understand, prepare for and manage local climate impacts.
Doris Duke Conservation Scholars
The Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at UW is a multi-summer, undergraduate learning experience that explores conservation across food, water, climate and ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest. DDCSP@UW supports emerging conservation leaders to develop unique perspectives and skill sets by drawing connections between conservation, individual and community identities, biodiversity and environmental justice.
Large freshwater ecosystems that help support the global economy and provide food, water, and energy worldwide are experiencing unprecedented changes. The University of Washington Future Rivers graduate research traineeship was designed to meet an urgent need for interdisciplinary scientists that can look at complex problems and datasets in innovative ways. This program will help gain insights into current and future problems from changes to these ecosystems.
Nature and Health
Nature and Health is working to accelerate our understanding of the health benefits of spending time in natural spaces and how to apply that knowledge across five key groups—veterans, children, the elderly, healthcare providers and underserved populations. Working closely with our partners, our goal is to help remove numerous health-related barriers, like lowering costs for care, designing better schools and hospitals and reducing disparities in health and well-being.
Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center
The Department of the Interior Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center was established to help safeguard the natural and cultural resources of Idaho, Oregon, Washington and surrounding river basins. The Center is a federal-university partnership that produces relevant and accessible science on climate change impacts and adaptation actions for Northwest natural resource managers and policy-makers.
Washington Ocean Acidification Center
The Washington Ocean Acidification Center at UW connects researchers, policymakers, industry and others across Washington to advance the science of ocean acidification and provide a foundation for proactive strategies and policies to protect marine ecosystems and the people that depend on them.
