The Art and Science of Speed Dating
When the first of my 14 dates sat down across from me, my stomach turned a bit. I’d never been speed dating before. What if I got 14 rejections? After all, we came from such different backgrounds! Luckily my fears were completely unfounded. On Thursday night, PositiveFeedback, an initiative of the Earth Institute, the Center for Creative Research at NYU, and the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities, brought together artists and climate scientists (or climate science writer in my case) for a round of speed dating. The goal? To help practitioners of the two disciplines find common ground and develop new (professional) relationships.
