Over the past year, the GIAL – a former Ellicott Complex Disco dance floor in the 1980s and center point for Geography at UB – has hosted collaborative research and learning events with stakeholder participation through SUE and the OUTSTEP-LGL. As part of the Earth Day Week celebrations at UB, the GIAL planned an event that included UB Alumni as well as former and current collaborators in research, learning and outreach activities to meet with current and interested students and faculty. Due to COVID-19, this event has been modified for an online audience by invitation and request only to provide a view for participants into the GIAL living laboratory and the opportunity to exchange ideas and stimulate the collaboration of with the community on and off campus.
