Organization Perspective: Darcy Dugan, Alaska Ocean Acidification Network
From the standpoint of an organization invited to host a table, the Climate Change Open House put on by Alaska Common Ground was an inspiring and valuable experience. I hosted a booth for the Alaska Ocean Acidification Network, and when the doors opened, I watched the room fill with interested, community-minded, action-oriented people of all ages. The structure of the event really catered towards people connecting with organizations that fit their interest. I had many one-on-one conversations and filled up two pages of email addresses of people interested in learning more about getting involved in ocean acidification. I also had the opportunity to learn about many other efforts taking place in our city that I didn’t know about—from Yarducopia to the Electric Vehicle Association to resources at the library. I left feeling invigorated and grateful to live in this community, and that we are all working together towards a greater effort.
