JBEI Participates at Earth Action Initiative

On April 6, JBEI’s outreach ambassadors attended the Earth Action Initiative Exhibition, an event organized by a group of UC Berkeley’s graduate students whose vision is to foster a community of people who integrate climate action into their lives, and help reduce the barrier to action for others.

Our ambassadors had the opportunity to discuss, connect and inform the local community about JBEI’s achievements and its expanded mission which now includes the advancement of bioproducts.

The event’s keynote speaker was Peggy Lemaux, faculty member at UC Berkeley and leader of the CLEAR Project (Communication, Literacy & Education for Agricultural Research). Lemaux gave great tips on how to conduct science communications more effectively.

JBEI’s outreach ambassadors at this event were Irina Silva, Jessica Trinh, Raphael Gabriel and Robin Herbert.
