Experience the MCC’s Program Development Process Presented at the 2018 American Meteorological Society Meeting in Austin, TX

The Manager Climate Corps’ two year development process was presented by Scott Laursen at this year’s annual meeting of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), specifically within the 13th Symposium on Societal Applications: Policy, Research, and Practice. You can read the abstract or experience the recorded 15-minute presentation directly.

The MCC’s approach to developing actionable science locally was well aligned with the symposium context as well as the broader theme of this year’s AMS meeting: “Transforming Communication in the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise Focusing on Challenges Facing Our Sciences.” Sub-themes within this year’s meeting were active engagement within the culture of communication, listening, engaging a wider range of disciplines and cultures, and a strong emphasis on practice as the cornerstone of innovation.

The MCC’s development process is founded in place-based experience and in-person interactions as a base for sustained collaborative practice that unites diverse worldviews.
