“I want us to eventually be a strong network of peers and leaders in our fields. I want our reputation to be that we lift each other up (and all people, regardless of if they're DDCSP alums or not), always have each other's backs and we're all really good at what we do." ~Dyaami D'Orazio DDCSP UW Alumni

Over the last 30 years, climate change has emerged as the most pressing threat to our species and to life on our planet. Human behavior lies at the center of this issue, both as the problem and the solution. At the BE.Hive: Climate Change Needs Behavior Change summit, you will learn about the latest academic insights from behavior science, get inspired by the world’s leading environmentalists, be ignited by artists, storytellers and explorers, and identify some of the greatest opportunities for shifting human behavior to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

March 20, 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm EDT

One of the barriers to careers in conservation and the outdoors is the difficulty in accessing a strong professional network, to get that introductory knowledge, to get your foot in the door. In partnership with Children & Nature Network and The Wilderness Society, we will host a webinar and informational interview series designed to support just that: a strong career network for young, diverse leaders in the conservation and outdoor sectors.

March 27, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Attendees will experience thought-provoking presentations by regional and national environmental experts, enjoy the opportunity to network with leading nature professionals and be inspired to use the many strategies and tactics shared here to transform their local communities.

From Our Blog

Informational interviews are a chance to connect with a professional in your field of interest to learn about what they do, how they got there, and ask questions for advice about your career path. You are invited to connect with a staff member from The Wilderness Society, the leading conservation organization working to protect wilderness and inspire Americans to care for our wild places, for an informal interview.
