Workshop: Towards a Practical Environmental Footprint Tool

 
"Towards a Practical Environmental Footprint Tool"

This project will first develop the Integrated Environmental Footprint Tool (IEFT) for campus sustainability management, and we will then use that campus tool in conjunction with individual consumer footprints to explore strategies for reducing the consumer-driven portion of the campus footprints. 

Putting people into climate models: A multi-model approach to integrating human behavior and climate change

Earth system models lack dynamic representations of human emissions behavior but instead rely on static projections of future emissions. This approach ignores feedbacks between the social and climate systems: The impacts of climate change are likely to alter human perceptions of climate change and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emission behaviors that, in turn, influence the magnitude of climate change. Our past Pursuit made progress with the integration of climate and human behavioral models.

The Story of Urban Water Management Transitions

 

Looking to lessons from the past to inform the future 

Cities face increasing threats to water supplies, but how can they transition towards more sustainable water management? Rapid urbanization, population growth, regulatory frameworks, and multiple competing demands combine to complicate the ability for urban water managers to guarantee future water supplies.

Planning Workshop for Counter Climates: Petro-Infrastructure and Indigenous land, water, and atmosphere protection in Canada and the American Midwest.

There is increasing pressure in Alberta—the top oil-producing province in Canada—to extract and transport oil and gas to American markets. With governmental efforts in Alberta to counter Indigenous and environmental group resistance to Alberta’s oil and gas economy and exports, there is an urgent need to synthesize existing data and visualize/illustrate plural impacts of oil and gas infrastructure on Indigenous nations and nonhuman species.
