Wesleyan University

  • Environmental Studies & Science in Society

Convinced by the idea that a strict body and environment dichotomy does not exist, Belén wants to further explore how both food ecologies and human knowledge ecologies can be restored in farm worker communities who have to use harmful substances, like pesticides, in times where rapid food production is deemed necessary.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
