Who We are:

Dr. Shana Lee Hirsch

Founder and Executive Director

EcoFutures project was founded by Dr. Shana Lee Hirsch, an author and sustainability scientist who works at the nexus of environmental science and cultural change. She draws from her transdisciplinary background in natural resources science, policy, and management and her experiences working with scientists that are on “the front lines” of climate change in their daily work. Dr. Hirsch founded EcoFutures Project in 2022, as a way to bridge the gap between the critical scientific effort of understanding climate change and the diverse ways of knowing and managing the environment that are necessary to bring about systemic change to address future challenges. Dr. Hirsch' academic publications can be found here. Her book, published by UW Press can fe found here.
