  • Report Partners Climate Change Conference Sustainable Path
    examine the wisdom of this approach I was surprised by the amount of grief and frustration both my own and others that emerged over the course of two intense days of presentations and workshops Acknowledging and sharing these feelings was incredibly comforting and empowering however Accepting our own very human reaction to climate change made it easier to understand that others reactions even the impulse to deny the problem are grounded in the same fear and sadness We realized that empathy is the key to engaging others in positive change While it s unlikely that we will be able to solve the problem of climate change in our lifetimes or avoid many of its tragic outcomes we know that we can chart a better course and to paraphrase keynote speaker Kathleen Dean Moore it is our moral imperative to do so Steve Dubiel I attended the Cascadia Climate Collaborative hosted at Whidbey Institute thanks to support from Sustainable Path Foundation The conference provided a valuable opportunity to strategize network and reflect I was most surprised by the opportunity for reflection As somebody who checks email 24 7 unplugging is a challenge In hindsight unplugging provided one of the greatest benefits The participants were caring and passionate The format of the conference provided time to listen think and reflect without interruption This provided me space to think broadly about climate change and how it relates to my work at EarthCorps and beyond After committing to the conference I learned that I needed be in Tacoma Friday afternoon to receive a 4 9 million check to launch the Commencement Bay Stewardship Collaborative the first of its kind stewardship fund in the nation using superfund settlement funds The intent is for EarthCorps to monitor and steward a portfolio of restoration sites in perpetuity

  • Enlisting Nature to Stem Climate Change - Sustainable Path Sustainable Path
    Pacific Northwest agricultural and forestry practices and urban greening are the main areas in which this approach is relevant A biocarbon initiative is especially attractive because many practices that increase carbon storage in vegetation and soils will have other benefits such as protecting water supplies preventing floods building soil fertility and reducing urban storm water runoff Additionally efforts to recycle the carbon in biological waste streams will provide new sources of energy industries and jobs These ideas are explored in detail on Climate Solutions website The seminar helped create a better understanding of the biocarbon initiative in the Pacific Northwest Our region s abundant capabilities for growing trees and food commitment to land conservation and restoration plus the progressive ideas at play in the major cities allow us to become a leader in testing and refining the best practices for harnessing photosynthesis for the dual benefit of human society and nature The moderator was Patrick Mazza research director at Climate Solutions Patrick has been central to Climate Solutions Northwest Biocarbon Initiative and has authored a detailed report on this issue Patrick introduced the topic of biocarbon and its importance for fighting climate change He also moderated the Q A and discussion period One of the speakers was Dr Chad Kruger the director of the Washington State University Center for Sustaining Agriculture Natural Resources and leader of CSANR s award winning Climate Friendly Farming Project Chad addressed the ways in which forestry and agricultural practices in our region can be improved to enhance carbon storage and other services that nature provides He also discussed the creative ways in which biological waste streams can be used to provide economic and societal benefits The second speaker was Professor Nancy Rottle from the Landscape Architecture department at the University of Washington who directs the
