SPEAKER SERIES: SPOTLIGHT ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time, with wide-ranging environmental and social impact across the globe. In the first installment of DWC’s new Speaker Series, Dr. Cameron Wake, Climatologist at the University of New Hampshire, will present on current environmental science research and discuss the importance of non-scientific communities rallying around the issues of climate change and sustainability.
Though the connection between dance and climate change may not be immediately apparent, at Dance for World Community we believe that everyone – including artists – has a role to play in changing the world for the better. Addressing climate change will require great innovation and creativity, not only in science and technology but also in all other sectors. Artists are uniquely innovative and creative and have enormous potential to be impactful change agents. Our goal is to bring the dance network together around a critical issue and to use our collective potential for impact to better our planet and our communities.
Please join us as we learn together and raise awareness about the current state of climate change research and explore how dancers can make a difference!
