CHN Awards Successes and Website Redesign


We are delighted to announce that the Climate History Network has received two substantial awards from competitive programs at Georgetown University. The first, a Research Infrastructure Award, will support a major expansion and redesign of our online presence. Co-administrator Dagomar Degroot has already used a small part of the award to give the Network a shorter domain name and an updated website. The second award comes from the Georgetown Environment Initiative Impact Program. It will fund annual "Climate History Workshops" dedicated to hands-on, interdisciplinary skills training. It will also support a major "Conflict and Climate Change" conference, likely in 2017. These events will be hosted by Georgetown University. This is a transformative moment for the Climate History Network. We are thrilled to have an institutional home at Georgetown.
