Part of the Academy's Climate & Energy Series, "Climate Change, Carbon, and Sustainable Agriculture" featured Diane Mayerfeld (Senior Outreach Specialist, UW-Madison Division of Extension) and Susanne Wiesner (Research Associate, UW-Madison). They discussed how sustainable agricultural practices can increase carbon drawdown, lead to healthier soils, and provide other ecosystem services/benefits.
The Spring 2021 Climate & Energy Series explores the ideas of the Fall 2020 Environmental Breakfast Series, Steps to Transformative Change. In the Climate & Energy Series, we will explore how Wisconsin leaders are moving beyond incrementalism to transformational action at the intersections of climate, land management, and environmental justice. These conversations are designed to foster discussion and peer learning among experts, practitioners, and climate-concerned citizens regarding local solutions to global environmental challenges. These virtual discussions build a collective sense of purpose, knowledge, and action as we face the many challenges of our time. See our archive of previous series presentations here.
