More Information & Speaker Bios:

Ben Packard joined the UW in September 2017 as the Harriet Bullitt Endowed Executive Director of EarthLab. He previously served as global managing director of corporate engagement at the The Nature Conservancy, and prior to that led the internationally recognized environmental sustainability efforts at Starbucks. His role will help build the relationships that enable EarthLab to bring the exceptional research and science at the University to bear on a range of environmental matters.

Topic:

EarthLab is the UW-wide initiative that harnesses the power of collaboration to tackle thorny environmental challenges including climate change, ocean health, natural hazards and healthy ecosystems. Part research engine and part community catalyst, EarthLab engages public, private, nonprofit and academic sectors in a shared and ongoing conversation that converts knowledge to action. Together, we identify the places where life on our planet is at greatest risk and co-create solutions that make a real impact on people's lives. EarthLab co-creates and applies decision-ready science where society's needs are greatest. There are four areas of focus - Oceans, Natural Hazards, Ecosystems and Climate. Key to EarthLab's success will be building relationships between the University and public, private and nonprofit sectors. https://earthlab.uw.edu/
