Climate Positive Energy Summer Climate Seminars: Stories, Science, and Stuff: Strategies for Climate Engagement at the ROM

University of Toronto’s Climate Positive Energy Initiative is pleased to welcome Dr. Soren Brothers for a talk on strategies for Climate Engagement, and the role of storytelling and science in engaging communities to take climate action.

———-

Dr. Soren Brothers is the Allan and Helaine Shiff Curator of Climate Change at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto. He is also an Assistant Professor at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto. Soren’s research examines the effects of climate change on lakes, and how changes in aquatic systems can influence their greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. More broadly, he is interested in understanding how feedback loops and the transdisciplinary study of lakes can help us better understand and predict global tipping points that may accelerate anthropogenic climate change.
