Home on Earth

Home on Earth is a collaborative research project that uses methods of design thinking to draw from disciplines of Botany, Library Science, and the Built Environment and make connections between plants, special collections, and built projects. The larger significance of Home on Earth is its effort to produce new methods for communicating complex realities of climate change to a general audience. The final product for Home on Earth will be a published book and artifact collections (physical and digital).
