Earth to Sky
Idaho Regional Hub for Climate Communication
Kayla Bordelon & Dr. Teresa Cohn
The NASA and National Park Service-sponsored Earth to Sky Idaho Regional Hub aims to cultivate a regional community of practice for climate communication and is comprised of educators from around the state, including two Confluence Lab scholars: Kayla Bordelon and Dr. Teresa Cohn.
This state-wide collaboration supports climate communication initiatives, starting with hosting climate change workshops for informal and formal educators. Our goal is to collectively explore the innovations and avenues for place-based communication that effectively engages Idaho’s public with the issue of climate change. We draw on the diverse expertise of other Confluence Lab scholars in both the humanities and the sciences. Partnering departments and organizations include the UI Sustainability Center, the UI McCall Outdoor Science School, Boise Environmental Education, and Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation.
The Earth to Sky program is funded by NASA and the National Park Service.
