The WOR lectures are hosted in association with AGCI’s workshops. Each lecture features a scientist prominent within his or her field speaking to the public on a timely issue of global environmental change.
AGCI is dedicated to identifying promising policies, technologies, and research ideas that accommodate the energy requirements of the human population while reducing the environmental impact of civilization’s energy needs.
The AGCI Resilience Project aims to help foster improved dialogue about resilience and offers a set of core principles from which communities can get started. This work emerges from a 2015 AGCI workshop on the topic, Risk & Resilience in the Face of Global Change.
The interactive Roaring Fork Observation Network (iRON) is comprised of a series of local watershed-wide monitoring stations (ranging in elevation from 6,200ft to over 12,000ft) that help to improve local understanding of our ecosystems in the context of a changing climate.
AGCI is assisting ACES with the development of a Forest Health Index, a resource designed to help identify and communicate important trends in our forest. The FHI is available at www.foresthealthindex.org
