American Association for the Advancement of Science Calls Out Climate Science Alliance as Model

The creation and impact of the Climate Science Alliance was recently highlighted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). “How we Respond” is an important new study for AAAS. Check out how our network of 340 scientists, organizations, educators, artists, and more are taking action on climate change!

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology launched “How We Respond: Community Responses to Climate Change”, which features stories and a report to highlight the innovative ways communities are using science to respond to climate change at a local level.

“There are so many great efforts out there and I wanted the Alliance to be a place where we could support and promote those efforts, but also weave them together when appropriate to have a bigger impact together than alone.”

- Dr. Amber Pairis, Climate Science Alliance Director

The Climate Science Alliance is excited to be highlighted as one of the stories of adaptation as we’ve expanded our scope to provide solutions not only in the south coast ecoregion, but across the nation. AAAS interviewed Dr. Amber Pairis, Director of the Climate Science Alliance, about her journey from a senior scientist to the founder of an organization that has brought together more than 280 organizations, agencies, and individuals over the course of just four years.
