Isatis Cintron is a Puerto Rican PhD student at Rutgers University studying the chemistry, transport, and impacts of air pollution on glaciers from Antarctica to Greenland. She coordinates the Latin America Region for Citizens Climate Education (CCE). She is committed on the design of efficient and active citizen engagement and climate-smart policies in the region, raising everyone’s voices to the table.
Cintron is developing a series of Citizens Assemblies or situational rooms as a blueprint for multilevel stakeholder value-driven and future building discussions as part of the OpenCOP CCE initiative. She is devoted to community organization and capacity building through the region and in Puerto Rico. Cintron believes that one of scientists' greatest duties is to distribute and create information with multiple stakeholders, since the purpose of knowledge is to be shared. She is the founder of Climate Trace, an organization that aims to build a grassroots Climate Agenda for Puerto Rico that translates into policy by building bridges between citizens, policymakers, and scientists.
