Erich Eberhard

Erich is an environmental scientist and artist based in Brooklyn. He believes that operationalizing scientific knowledge hinges on the ability to communicate, which is as much about engaging with diverse perspectives to develop a holistic understanding of environmental challenges as it is about sharing research insights with stakeholders at all levels. To this end, Erich employs art to promote mutual understanding between affected communities, researchers, and the general public, and to empower community-led environment management. He is thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to Mongabay and further develop as an environmental journalist.
