On February 2, 2022, the College of the Environment hosted Atlas of the Invisible: Maps and Graphics that Will Change How You See the World, via zoom, featuring speakers James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti. Cheshire is a professor of geographic information and cartography in London, and Uberti is a designer who helps scientists translate their data into memorable visuals. The duo authored a book of the same name, Atlas of the Invisible (W.W. Norton, 2021), filled with data maps that visualize important issues and tell valuable stories about our planet. The Chicago Tribune called the book, “A cartographer’s dream, and often revelatory.”
Climate economist Gernot Wagner shared his views on the current state of U.S. and global climate policy during a public virtual event sponsored by the College of the Environment on October 20.
On Saturday, October 16, members of the Wesleyan and greater Middletown communities attended the student-organized 2021 Pumpkin Fest at Long Lane Farm. The event was made possible with support from the College of the Environment and the Green Fund.
