Environmental Justice Advocates Learn GLOBE Protocols to Assist in Collaborative Problem Solving




Environmental Justice Advocates gather from several states across the Southeast at the Franklinton Social Justice Center in North Carolina to study approaches for appropriate land use management techniques including forestry and agriculture. The FOREST Summit hosted by the Dogwood Alliance emphasized resilience, entrepreneurship and responsible land conservation. The Center for Sustainable Communities, a GLOBE Partner, provided instruction in the use of citizen science in data collection for collaborative problem-solving.  The Environmental Justice Groups were trained in six GLOBE protocols on the use of a tree inventory app to measure tree inventory benefits. The Center for Sustainable Communities was a recent participant in the US Globe STEM Equity Forum held in New Orleans and plans to further spread the use of the protocols in education, research and citizen science with an emphasis on underserved and vulnerable populations.  (shown below)
