Community Science Coalition
In addition to supporting the Center for Environmental Sciences and Humanities, the lab supports the OSUN Community Science Coalition, an international network working to bridge the gaps between climate change, academic institutions, and the equitable management of shared natural resources. The Community Science Lab will serve as the coalition's core lab facility, conducting environmental testing in response to community concerns. The data generated will be used to evaluate local climate impacts and help inform decision makers.
Bringing Water Science to Water Communities
What do we need right now to advance water stewardship in the Hudson Valley? More water sampling? More community involvement? More laws? Science can be used as a tool to address many of these important questions, and help map a way forward in these complicated times. M. Elias Dueker, the Center’s director, presents a framework for community-centered science in this webinar hosted by the Hudson River Watershed Alliance.
