Brooklyn, NY gets AWESOME on holiday decorations this year.
I had the new and enjoyable experience of both speaking at and scribing for a discussion at this year’s World Science Forum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Hosted by the World Association of Young Scientists and a collective of research staff bodies called ICorSA, the conversation had us digging into the different ways that young scientists and social innovators are making science sustainable for the next generation.
I had the pleasure of highlighting what some of my favorite organizations - including Global Minimum, WeCyclers, and Public Lab - are doing in this regard. And I also got to learn a lot more about what traditional science bodies are noodling over these days.
And a final conclusion: a return trip to Brazil is definitely in order. What a fascinating moment in time to experience this tremendous country.
