Environmental Science and Policy


This project seeks to explore the multi-disciplinary nature of the environmental sciences. It examines an online magazine as a form of communication and a possible answer to the question of how to get more people interested in environmental science. Methodology involved advertising the magazine to the Smith and Northampton communities, collecting submissions, editing submissions and publishing the magazine online. Results were that there was an interest from the Smith community, as there were twenty-one total submissions. There was no response from the Northampton community. These findings show that an environmental magazine is an excellent means of communicating environmental information, as well as a means of getting people interested in environmental science and initiating dialogue about environmental issues.
