When it comes to climate change, UBC Prof. Stephen Sheppard and Adjunct Prof. David Flanders know that pictures speak louder than words. The Decision Theatre at UBC’s Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning (CALP) uses computer-generated visualizations, grounded in scientific data, to help communities and policymakers understand the local impacts of climate change and visualize the results of different mitigation strategies. See how the Decision Theatre at the Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability (CIRS) helps turn knowledge into action.
From February 16-20, 2012, more than 8,000 participants will convene at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting in Vancouver, Canada. Professor Stephen Sheppard is a speaker at the AAAS Symposium: Beyond Climate Models: Rethinking How To Envision the Future with Climate Change and Prof. David Flanders is a speaker at the AAAS Symposium: Flood Adaptation Near Vancouver: A Regional Adaptation Collaborative.
