Art for Climate/Energy Living Labs

Gifts of the Northern Sun and Nature Commoning/Solar Commoning Game Development are living lab initiatives housed at the Center for Social Research@UMD.  As part of the Lake Superior Living Lab Network, students, faculty and local regional artists are working together to bring art into the work of interconnecting energy practices with climate and other social- ecological practices that make up the everyday experience of life in our region.  These community-engaged research projects involve faculty and students in art education, geography, anthropology and environmental studies.
