New Wrack Lines focuses on finding hope through action

Cover of Spring-Summer 2020 issue of Wrack Lines magazineJourney from the labs, classrooms and art studios of UConn to a threatened Caribbean island to the waters of Long Island Sound in the Spring-Summer 2020 issue of Wrack Lines.

The articles deal with subjects ranging from plastic pollution to solar-electric boating to a project at a school for girls in the Dominican Republic. This issue’s theme: “Too Big? Too Late? Acting locally to take on the world’s major challenges” summarizes the common thread: the stories all give examples of people doing their part to make some daunting problems a bit less overwhelming.

The “Sharing Our Stories” feature is also launched in this issue, in which a member of our staff, a researcher or partner we work with tells how and why they got into their field, or about specific aspect of their career.
