EACS Lunch – Tuesday 4/11 with Marjahn Finlayson: Climate Inequity & Disaster: Hurricanes and What We Want to Do In The Bahamas
Marjahn Finlayson – Research fellow, Open Climate
Marjahn “MJ” Finlayson is a climate change scientist, educator, and activist. She
got her start in science as a tropical cyclone (hurricane) watcher, trying to figure
out how climate change will affect these phenomena since she is a native of a
hurricane-prone nation, The Bahamas. She studies severe weather in our
changing climate, especially for island nations and communities.
Based on her work in education and community engagement for climate science
and weather, she founded ClimateEdu Bahamas and Fin Forecasts in 2022 and co-
founded DAPS (Development. Advancement. Preservation. Sustainability.) as
conduits to extend her reach in this work.
As an activist, Marjahn’s mission is to bring concerns of Small Island Developing
States and underserved communities to the center stage of the international
climate change talks and to work more toward radical climate justice. Marjahn
can be found on the Carbon Brief Global South database.
All are Welcome!
