We all live within the land, the ocean, the rains, the winds.
Changes in these due to our climate crisis are everywhere and impact
us all. These changes are often slow and subtle, punctuated by intense activity:
storms, landslides, fires. If we only notice these catastrophes, then we are missing a
critical part of the story. Erin will share two passions
of hers. One is the value of spending more time
observing and being curious about the slow and subtle changes happening in
our own communities, because slow and subtle changes matter. The
other is to expand who is doing the observing, because who
does the science defines how the science gets done, who benefits from
the science, and, ultimately, what science matters.
