Summer Climate Change Interns

During the summer of 2016, CICCA welcomed three summer interns to the team! Abbie Kramer, Giorgi Tsintsadze, and Savannah Acosta (Cornell undergraduates) contributed to an incredibly productive summer at CICCA, in which we: started a new social media climate change infographic campaign (example pictured), filmed new decision tool tutorial and farmer interview videos, conducted various climate change-related research projects, applied for high-profile grants including to the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, secured the Cornell delegation to COP22 in Marrakech, maintained a Climate Smart Farming exhibit in Mann Library, and reached out to over 100 youth on climate change. We look forward to building on this work throughout the academic year as well, and have invited our summer interns to work with CICCA as Research Assistants this fall.
