Building Bridges between Conservation Biology and Energy Technology – Opportunities for Bidirectional Information Exchange and Direct Collaboration

Steven C. DeCaluwe

This interactive session was a revelatory “meeting of the minds” from researchers in a wide variety of fields related to the intersection between conservation biology and energy technology, many of whom thought they were alone in their wish to connect and synthesize across disciplinary lines. Through this interactive session, we were able to connect, identify salient topics for initial collaboration, brainstorm some near-term initial publications, and plan next steps for forming a persistent online community (via Slack) to continue and grow this exciting collaborative space.

Confronting eco-grief and eco-anxiety in the conservation classroom

Jessica Pratt, Karissa Gallego Lovero
