  17. 17. Creative Activism in Climate Change
  18. 18. Climate Change is arguably the most significant conservation challenge we face today, particularly in urban settings like New York City as the area continues to recover from Superstorm Sandy. WCS wanted to explore ways NYC teenagers could engage in creative activism to address climate change issues in their city through a seamless integration of applied science learning and technical skills. The program focused on climate science and urban ecology with a challenge for participants to connect community audiences to conservation issues facing their city and communicate possible solutions. What did we hope to discover through CACC?
  19. 19. The Four Projects Electronic Design & Construction @ the Central Park Zoo Dr. Jonah Brucker-Cohen, an award winning artist, writer, researcher and Scrapyard Challenge founder, helped participants focus on sustainability and climate change through the exploration of trash. Participants designed and built simple electronic projects out of found or discarded "junk" as tools for building awareness about complex climate change problems facing NYC. Geospatial Modeling & Analysis @ the Bronx Zoo Dr. Eric W. Sanderson, a landscape ecologist, writer, and director of the Manahatta and Welikia projects, trained participants to use a vision-making application, he co-developed, to improve the nature of NYC. Participants used the Manahatta2409 platform to create their own vision of a climate-resilient, sustainable NYC at a block-by-block level and shared it with others. GIS Mapping @ the Prospect Park Zoo HabitatMap partner, Michael Heimbinder, a community and environmental innovator, trained participants to use the online mapping and Aircasting platforms, as well as, open source GIS tools. Participants created an interactive map exploring the visual impacts of climate change on local communities, politics, and infrastructure within Brooklyn and shared with community audiences. Transmedia Storytelling @ the Queens Zoo Paolo Cirio, an international contemporary media artist, works in the framework of cultural, political, and economic realities and information to fabricate new realities. Participants learned to create transmedia storytelling projects - a technique used to tell a story or experience across multiple platforms and formats, using various digital media tools such as video, photography, and social media. Their futuristic stories were set at the 2064 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
