To Find Solutions to Our Most Global Problems, We Must Go Into the Field
Play • 35 min

Solving global problems requires looking at the whole picture—and sometimes that means getting your hands dirty. In this conversation with environmental studies experts Jim Jordan and Dawn Murray, we hear why their work often involves studying across disciplines—and across the globe. They are clear about the benefits they see from studying in different environments all around the world—from gaining a deeper understanding of the problems our planet faces to creating meaningful connections across cultures.

Dawn Murray directs the BS in Environmental Studies, Sustainability, and Sciences for Antioch Online.

Jim Jordan is the Director of the Field Studies Program for Environmental Studies at Antioch New England.

Keep a look out for Dawn's forthcoming book titled Monpa Traditional Plants: Indigenous Knowledge from a Himalaya Healer.
