The Collaboratory in Active Regenerative Ecologies (C.A.R.E.) is a bioregion-specific and radically innovative project that aims to invite educators to a summer residency in the Hudson River Estuary, focusing on immersive pedagogies.
The programme’s overall goal is to learn with the estuary and from ourselves as co-inhabitants in the bioregion.
This programme has earned a Science and Resilience Institute Fellowship for Research Development (2019) and a Public Humanities Fellowship (2020-2021) in order to develop its many parts toward launching it in Summer 2021 (pending the evolution of the Coronavirus pandemic).
This summer (2020) the programme benefited with the labor of two interns from Brooklyn College’s Urban Sustainability, Philosophy and Environmental Studies programs, Jamie Hitzel and Brandon Carrillo. Their bios and work can be found below
Jamie’s labor for the summer consisted, amongst many other things, in putting her mapping skills to work. Without her the following eco-friendly organizations and people along the Hudson River Valley would not live in the same map. Please feel free to use it, share it, and if you see fit to add someone who’s work should be here and is missing, please send us a note!
For subsequent stages I have partnered with Noelle Thurlow, founder and director of Resilience Paddle Sports, who will be the lead logistics person for the implementation of the project.
