We congratulate scientist Professor Sharon Robinson, Homeward Bound Science Facilitator [Team HB3 & HB5 Island Sky], who was recently featured by the UN Ozone Secretariat, for her work as a member of the UN Environment Programme Environmental Effects Assessment Panel (EEAP) which is at the forefront of global climate action to protect the ozone layer and the environment. Sharon co leads reporting on how ozone depletion impacts terrestrial ecosystems across the globe.
