    Conversations in the Disciplines: Depolarizing the Environment.
    9:00 am - 5:00 pm. SUNY-ESF Campus, Gateway Center. From land use conflict to climate change to hydrofracking to a host of other issues, why are environmental issues so polarizing? Is it political opportunism? Is it scientific ignorance? Is it an academic monoculture, insulated from the realities of the world? What avenues, if any, exist for constructive engagement across political divides? What can we do as academics to promote constructive discussion at the difficult interface of environment, politics, culture and science? Join us at SUNY-ESF for a thought-provoking Conversations in the Disciplines on the topic "Depolarizing the Environment." We will explore how the science of the environment can be better engaged with the political and social realms we inhabit, and how to foster a culture of intellectual openness at the difficult interface of environment, politics, culture and science.

    Speaker: Boston Schoolyard Initiative
    12:45 pm - 1:45 pm. Baker 146. Guest speaker Kristin Metz was the Director of Education for the Boston Schoolyard Initiative (BSI) from 2000 to 2013. The BSI ( sparked two decades of collaboration across Boston, transforming asphalt schoolyards of 88 elementary schools into centers for community, recreation, and learning. The multi-stakeholder partnership helped Boston Public Schools incorporate outdoor teaching as a routine practice; and influenced science (STEM) teaching on a national level. Kristin Metz is now an Education Consultant helping schools and districts build the capacity to support outdoor teaching and learning. (This event is sponsored by ESF's Graduate Student Association (GSA), and co-hosted with ESF's Outreach Office and the ESF Office of Energy & Sustainability).

    Author Profiles
    12:30 pm - 1:15 pm. 110 Moon Library. ScopusID, ResearcherID, ScholarID, ResearchGateID, ORCID… There are many ID systems to help researchers identify what work is attributed to them. In this session we will learn about the most popular ID systems, how to find your numbers, and also explore how these numbers can be used to populate biosketches, official CVs for grants, and also how they can bring together your scholarly contributions. No experience required. For a basic primer on a few author IDs, visit:
