The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC San Diego is a membership program for adults over the age of 50 who want to be part of a learning community with peers. They are committed to providing their members with intellectually stimulating learning opportunities throughout the year. Each quarter, Osher features lectures and seminars by the outstanding faculty and researchers of the UC San Diego community, as well as local leaders, artists and musicians.



Climate Science Alliance Deputy Director Alex Warneke and Scripps Institution of Oceanography and California-Nevada Applications Program scientist, Dr. Julie Kalansky presented data from the San Diego County Ecosystems report on how climate impacts to the region are predicted to impact regional flora and fauna. Together they discussed the Alliance’s model of making science actionable and relatable to the community. The presentations were followed by a lively discussion with the Osher students.


Thank you to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute for this opportunity to connect with the community and share climate hope.
