Abstract:
Join us as we discuss the societal causes and impacts of climate change. We'll take a look at how we arrived at the current moment, through a lens of colonization, capitalism and racism. Indigenous nation's around the world are leading the fight against climate change to protect the planet for future generations. As oceanographers it is important to think about the role we can play in this challenging time, and how we can provide allyship to the communities most impacted.

 

The Banse Oceanography Seminar Series is named in honor of Dr. Karl Banse, who was recently named as a AAAS fellow, honored for his continuing work on the ecology of the plankton.  This year's quarter-long seminar series is being held during Winter Quarter (2020), organized by Dr. Jodi Young.  The series will be held on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 3:50 in the Ocean Sciences Building, room 425.
