In this Wisconsin Academy Talk we explore how tools like scenario-building, storytelling, and the arts can help us better envision our role in prospective responses to climate change.
- Mrill Ingram, a Visiting Scholar with at the University of Wisconsin Geography Department and Curator at Upworthy, will discuss how the arts and storytelling provide avenues for communicating about complex concepts like environmental change and help us imagine new ways of responding.
- University of Wisconsin scientists Chris Kucharik and Steve Carpenter, who are currently leading a NSF-funded investigation using scenario-building to illustrate how our future in Wisconsin will be different depending on the future choices we make. Kucharik and Carpenter will discuss how scenario-building combines science with graphic arts and storytelling to craft potential futures for life in Wisconsin.
