Tuesday October 18th, 2022 - 1:30pm Eastern / 10:30am Pacific
Join Interfaith Power & Light as we host pioneering forest canopy biologist Dr. Nalini Nadkarni. Dr. Nadkarni will talk about her work studying the forest canopy and finding that many faith and spiritual traditions have trees and forests as central parts of their respective religious texts. Her message is to recognize these silent sedentary companions that live with us and to be thankful for them.
Dr. Nalini Nadkarni is a Professor of Biology at the University of Utah and a pioneer in the field of forest canopy science. She carries out research on ecological interactions in rainforest canopies with support from the National Science Foundation and the National Geographic Society. Nadkarni also engages people outside academia through collaborations with faith-based groups, artists, corporations and people who are incarcerated. Drawing upon religious scriptures, she has given sermons on “Trees and Spirituality” in over 50 places of worship, and had conversations with religious leaders such as the Archbishop of Canterbury. Her work is featured public media such as NPR, Science Friday and RadioLab. Her awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, the AAAS Award for Public Engagement, the The William Wilson Award for Social Justice, and the Archie Carr Medal for Conservation.
