Thriving Earth Exchange part of EarthConnections:Program Descriptions
Our program connects community leaders and scientists and helps them work together to advance local priorities using Earth and space science. Projects range from helping neighborhood groups in Denver, CO measure and mitigate dangerous environmental chemicals to helping the sustainability manager in Chelsea, MA evaluate strategies to protect residents from extreme heat. A few key things about us: we begin by understanding the broad range of community priorities and looking for the places geoscience can advance those priorities; our definition of science is expansive, and includes science education, application, citizen science and science policy as well as research. For us, community means anything from a neighborhood to a region, or even a community of professionals tackling similar issues in many places. Community leaders can be decision-makers, policy-makers, and citizen-leaders, really anyone who is engaged in making their community (however defined) better.
