Landscapes of Knowledge and Power in Climate Change Science and Policy 

Humans must learn the landscapes within which they live. Building functional knowledge of unfamiliar landscapes is a thread that connects archaeology across time and place and a process that all communities around the world will face in coming years as climate change progresses. But as world leaders from COP24 onward have noted, what is most needed for action on climate change is social and political will to act. In order to more effectively connect archaeological knowledge and practice to the modern need to learn to live in a changing world, it is essential that we all see and learn the social and political landscapes of power that shape climate change science and policy.
