Abstract

Good environmental science does not automatically translate into good environmental policy. This paper explores how to help students in an interdisciplinary Earth Systems Science and Policy program translate the “is” of science into the “ought” of policymaking.

Keywords: Conservation biology, education, pedagogy, environmental policy
