Sustainability Management and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences will sponsor a free screening of the documentary David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet via Zoom at 4:00 p.m. on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, 2021. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion at 5:30 p.m. You can join us for the whole event or watch the movie on your own time and tune in at 5:30 p.m. for the panel discussion.
A Life on Our Planet serves as Attenborough’s “witness statement” through which he shares concerns for the current state of the planet and hopes for the future. Many are familiar with Attenborough as a faceless narrator, but in this film, you will go on a journey with him as he traces his 60 plus years as a naturalist, showing you the planet’s past and present biodiversity and the degradation humans have caused over the years.
Join us for a post-film panel discussion with Syracuse University Earth and Environmental Sciences professors:
- Professor Suzanne Baldwin is a geologist who investigates the rock record to reveal how the Earth has evolved over geologic time;
- Professor Melissa Chipman is a paleoecologist who uses lake sediments to study interactions between past climate, wildfires, and permafrost thaw in the Arctic.
- Professor Sam Tuttle is a hydroclimatologist who studies the movement and storage of water throughout the earth system
