Theory of Change:
If Avalanche Lab supports avalanche education through Technological innovations that provide more data, and advancements in public school curriculum, combined with public outreach; Then we can save laves by empowering people to reduce their own hazard/risk, and save them selves with the empowerment of knowledge.
- That through the utilization in advancements in technology in combination with more data points, that we can reduce avalanche fatalities with more “informed consent” and correct decision making frameworks.
- That multiple exposures in the public school setting, including the promotion of the a continued educational path, we can further reduce avalanche fatalities by improving “informed consent” among the general public.
- By targeting the youth, we can empower future generations, as well as impacting the broader community as a whole, by teaching best practices to the future backcountry users.
