Watch the 2022 Doug Walker Lecture, Climate Crisis: Finding Hope in Action and Community

Faced with countless environmental crises, it can be difficult to see a path to a better world — but change doesn’t happen in a vacuum. We can find hope in the relationships we build, the communities we forge, and the power we share when we act together.

On October 18, 2022, the College community came together at Town Hall for a live discussion featuring environmental advocate and educator Jamie Stroble ’10, and moderated by Maya Tolstoy, Maggie Walker Dean of the UW College of the Environment. Video of the event is now available on the College YouTube channel.

About the lecture series

The annual Doug Walker Lecture is named for Doug Walker, who was instrumental to the founding of the College of the Environment in 2009 as a co-chair of the Advisory Board and passionate advocate for the environment. Doug passed away tragically in 2016. In order to carry on and amplify Doug’s passion for outdoor recreation and his unending desire for learning, the College of the Environment hosts this annual lecture on health and nature.
