Below we provide examples of the outreach activities we are engaged with. The main goals are:

1) To help disseminate our research results.

2) To inform the stakeholders interested in climate change mitigation and adaptation in natural, urban and terrestrial ecosystems

3) To inform the general public that funds and benefits from our research.

4) To contribute gaining the perspective that researchers may lose if they never take a walk outside their ivory towers.
