Our Earth's Future: One-Day Course
April 11, 2015
In a special one-day offering, Dr. Debra Tillinger will lead an in-depth exploration of the science of the Arctic and Antarctic regions, and how changes in these two critical areas of Earth indicate and catalyze the impacts of climate change. Participants will hear from guest speakers on the geology, biology, and cultures of these beautiful and fragile parts of the world. They will also engage in interactive discussions, take Museum hall tours, and enjoy a challenging game of geopolitics, SMARTIC, in which players must enact real-life solutions to the potential large-scale problems anticipated by the impact of climate change in the polar regions. Lunch will be served.
Presented in collaboration with the Columbia Climate Center at the Earth Institute and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University.
This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under grant number MA-10-13-0200-13.
