Haere Mai, Class S-289!
November 6, 2019
Jeff Wescott, Professor, Climate & Society
Students and faculty arrived safely in New Zealand today, surprisingly energetic considering the long hours across the Pacific Ocean. After a couple days in Christchurch, meeting with climate experts from the University of Canterbury and the local business community, we are off to visit Franz Josef and Aoraki Mount Cook, two areas in the western part of the South Island impacted by melting glaciers. Our New Zealand hosts have been welcoming (“Haere Mai” means “Welcome” in the language of the indigenous Māori people), and the dramatic landscape beyond the city beckons.
Much more to come...
