A Message to the Thriving Earth Exchange Community

Category: Uncategorized

We know that many members of the Thriving Earth Exchange community are directly or indirectly affected by the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) health emergency. Our thoughts are with you all.

Please know we will do what we can to support all our communities, partners, scientists, community leaders and fellows. We can help revise timelines, move to more virtual activities and work with you to help you manage the immediate challenges to your project posed by the virus. COVID-19 has drastically reduced everyone’s ability to engage in-person. AGU’s staff, including Thriving Earth Exchange, has moved to online meetings and we can help you do to the same.

Consider reviewing the Center for Disease Control (CDC) webpage “How to Prepare,” which can provide up-to-date information about COVID-19, including local information and the things you can do to prepare your community and protect yourself and your loved ones.

Public health events like this one ask the best of us.  We need to think of care for ourselves and those around us.  More than ever, we need to pay special attention to the most vulnerable – people who are older, sick or experiencing a lack of resources.  Responding to these events requires all aspects of our humanity – from our compassion and empathy to our scientific knowledge and research.  In the meantime, be well, take good care and please stay connected. Even in this time of social distancing—perhaps especially in this time—our community ties and shared humanity will help us get through.

On behalf of the Thriving Earth Exchange Team, With Warmest Wishes

Raj Pandya Thriving Earth Exchange Program Director
