Early Career Climate Change Forum Launches Online

This Forum grew out of a week-long workshop known as the Northwest Climate Science boot camp, sponsored by the Northwest Climate Science Center. The Forum consists of early career scientists, managers, and others working at the science management interface on climate change issues.

The intention of the Forum’s website is to provide a space for early career climate researchers and climate professionals to explore new ideas, network, and find support to help them excel in their chosen paths. Additionally, the Forum strives to be an accessible outlet where all people can come and learn about climate science from people intimately involved with studying the climate and its implications for ecosystems and people.
