Thanks to the Jefferson Trust and the UVA Committee on Sustainability, Write Climate, in year 3, is taking art-for-climate into Charlottesville High School. Nine UVa students, artist Amanda Nelsen and Envi Sci Professor Deborah Lawrence are working with two teachers and 80 9th graders in Environmental Science. We are going into the classrooms every other week, teaching some climate science and then working with plastic. An afterschool art ‘club’ every week is open to anybody at the high school.
Science Magazine highlighted recent research on ways that large trees are more vulnerable to mortality, including work led by former Enviromnetal Sciences Ph.D. student and post-doc Atticus Stovall.
Prof. Deborah Lawrence, the Write Climate club, and local artist Amanda Nelsen collaborated to create and display a climate change art installation outside Peabody Hall this week.
Envi Sci Professor Hank Shugart’s post ‘Foundations of the Earth’ is being featured on the UVA Thoughts From the Lawn blog.
