Science@Work Lecture on Human Adaptation to Climate
On December 9, we are fortunate to welcome a filmmaker and Ph.D. candidate to campus. Alize Carrere is our next Science@Work Lecturer; she is the second in our four-part lecture series as we strive to bring scientists to campus to share their work with us.
With the persistence of environmental change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. With support from National Geographic and The Redford Center, filmmaker Alizé Carrère has been documenting innovative human adaptations in places such as Madagascar, Bangladesh, Vanuatu, Norway, and the United States. From floating farms in Bangladesh to ice pyramids in the Himalayas, these stories reveal incredible ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of environmental adversity.
Carrere will share her experiences and film footage from the field as she explains these unique examples of human adaptation, reminding us of the most important trait that has allowed for our continued survival on earth.
Join us for this free lecture at Tabor Academy on December 9 at 6:30 PM in the Stroud Academic Center's Lyndon South Auditorium at 242 Front Street, Marion. Bring a friend!
