The Environmental Resilience Institute invited faculty, students, alumni, and partners to attend a morning of community and dialogue at our Environmental Futures Forum when we launched the new Grand Challenges programs in Environmental Resilience and Sustainability.
Opening remarks were given by Provost Ian Baucom, followed by lightning talks highlighting ERI-funded projects and several UVA climate related programs.
Karen McGlathery, ERI's Director, hosted a conversation on funding and mentoring opportunities through the new Grand Challenges programs. The audience was invited to engage in a townhall style conversation, providing an opportunity to shape the development of ERI's programming.
