Tune in to Planet Philadelphia 4-5 pm Friday 8/3/18 4-5 pm at 92.9 low power FM Germantown Community Radio and WGGT-LP and/or streaming at gtownradio.com.
As the planet warms there will be several large challenges we as a society need to address. Most of these challenges will hit our youth the hardest. This Planet Philadelphia features podcasts by Temple University students about the climate change adaptation process and its implications for equity and social justice.
Seventeen undergraduate students at Temple University enrolled in the “Geography of Hazards” course offered by the Geography and Urban Studies Department produced these podcasts. Dr. Hamil Pearsall, a professor in the Geography and Urban Studies Department at Temple, supervised. The students worked in groups of four to five to create the episodes, and each group partnered with a local organization or agency: Philadelphia Horticultural Society, Temple University Office of Sustainability, Philadelphia Department of Public Health. Kay Wood, from Planet Philadelphia, and Richard Johnson, CUSP (Climate and Urban Systems Partnership) Project Manager, provided guidance on science communication. The Franklin Institute provided funding through its CUSP project competition.
