Natural Systems Include All of Nature: Living Systems, Geology, Water, and Air

Opportunities!

The NSWG is actively looking for folks to help in 2019.   

Content curators: we have a few topics in mind, and are open to more. Set up webinars or focused discussions. The individual will select a topic and suggest papers for an informal discussion. They will also work with leadership to suggest a webinar speaker on the topic.
