ARI researcher Dr. Ann-Perry Witmer talks with Illinois Public Media about climate change strategies


Dr. Ann-Perry Witmer, senior research scientist at ARI in the Contextual Innovation and Practice research group, recently spoke to Illinois Public Media, a nonprofit public media service from the UIUC College of Media. The interview focuses on using community knowledge in creating solutions for adapting to climate change. Strategies that use local expertise and cultural knowledge can lead to more sustainable and operable plans, which can in turn lead to better outcomes for communities. Dr. Witmer also discusses the impact globally-shared knowledge may have on how Illinois confronts and adapts to climate change.
