Over the past decade, there has been an increasing push toward making science more relevant to affected communities. April’s IARC salon explores how scientists and their organizations engage with local communities to improve science, address local problems and build lasting relationships. Bring your questions to our panel discussion with: This semester’s IARC salon graduate student coordinators are Julian Dann and Sarah Clement. Julian is an interdisciplinary master’s student working on remote sensing of tundra disturbance and science communication. Sarah is a PhD student in natural resources & sustainability studying science education through community and citizen science. She is excited to explore issues around community engagement in science and cultural norms (and how they’re changing) in field work and graduate student experiences.
Activities in a circular economy follow reduce (minimum use of raw materials), reuse (maximum reuse of products and components), and recycle (high-quality reuse of raw materials) principles where the life of the product gets extended.
