Team Member: Ana Lutz-Johnson

Position: Collaboration and Engagement Coordinator

Describe What You Do With the Climate Science Alliance: 

As the Collaboration and Engagement Coordinator, I have the pleasure of working collaboratively with diverse stakeholders to advance projects focused on climate change science and solutions. My duties span from social media and project management, to stakeholder engagement and event planning! It’s my goal to amplify community stakeholders’ voices while promoting equity and inclusion. Diverse perspectives lead to innovative ideas and solutions -- something that is desperately needed in the face of a changing climate. 

My adventure buddy/husband Max and I share a great love of the outdoors. He has an affinity for the beach and ocean, while I gravitate towards the mountains and forest!

Why do you do this work?

The environmental arena has always been magnetic to me. In times past, I have explored other professional avenues, but was always pulled back into a community that highlights science and the human experience. It’s a dynamic arena that gives me the ability to share the knowledge and skills I have gained, all through the lens of empowerment and personal action. Being the Collaboration and Engagement Coordinator at the Climate Science Alliance gives me the opportunity to connect with incredible individuals and organizations while promoting safe spaces for learning, asking tough questions, and exploring complex feelings.

Though the journey to resiliency and adaptation is an uphill battle, it is one not walked alone. I am thankful for the community I serve, and strive to contribute to a legacy that protects and empowers both people and the planet. This work is a personal calling, and I’m here to answer.
