Profile Information

Title or Role
Cornell University
Marianne E Krasny is professor in the Department of Natural Resources and Director of the Civic Ecology Lab at Cornell University. Through her research and outreach, she works with community-based organizations to examine how self-organized, environmental stewardship practices in cities contribute to civic renewal, ecosystem services, multi-generational learning, and social-ecological systems resilience. She directs EPA’s national environmental education training program (“EECapacity”), through which she fosters exchange of ideas among urban community environmental stewards, youth development professionals, and environmental educators, with the goal of helping environmental education to enhance its effectiveness in an increasingly urban society facing the realities of climate change. Recent edited books include: Trading Zones in Environmental Education: Creating Transdisciplinary Dialogue (with J Dillon), Resilience in Social-Ecological Systems: the Role of Learning and Education (with C Lundholm and R Plummer), and Greening in the Red Zone (with KG Tidball). A recent book is entitled Civic Ecology: Adaptation and Transformation from the Ground Up (ME Krasny and KG Tidball, MIT Press). Dr. Krasny supervises over 20 online courses and will teach her first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), Civic Ecology: Reclaiming Broken Places, in spring 2015. She also enjoys helping to steward the Cornell campus gorges through Friends of the Gorge, the civic ecology group she founded with Cornell students
