• The Cooperative Institute of Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder) is partnering with the American Association for the Advancement of Science to develop and grow an informed, involved, and impactful Colorado Local Science Engagement Network (CO-LSEN). CO-LSEN is a test-bed for local science engagement and advocacy, and accordingly coordinates and shares information, experiences, and insights with AAAS to inform their ongoing formulation of a nationwide strategy for supporting policy-engaged scientist networks at the state level. 
  • In the summer of 2022, a delegation from the European Union visited campus to discuss climate-based solutions to policy.
  • We regularly host panels and events to bring together policymakers and researchers tackling the challenges of our times from fire planning to a just transition. CO LSEN brings relevant and timely science to bear on policy decisions at the local and state levels so that policies are better suited to address challenges related to climate change, sustainability, technology adoption, and natural resource management in Colorado. For more information, go to the CO LSEN website.
  • The University of Colorado Boulder is hosting the UN Conference on Climate and Human Rights in December 2022. Prof. Boykoff has served on the Steering Committee and Prof. Pezzullo is speaking at an on campus event focused on the theme of the climate's impact on human rights.
