The Princeton Environmental Media Lab will launch in 2021 as a space for research, invention and communication. The lab's mission is to cultivate stories that illuminate pressing environmental problems and catalyze action. The lab understands those problems—from the global climate crisis to regional food and water health—as not only scientific and political but also cultural in nature.
The lab will apply new and established media to science communication and storytelling experiments, with an eye to the complex histories of contemporary environmental challenges. In this work, we will collaborate with artists, journalists, writers, activists and community leaders who work to effect transformational change for a more livable world.
