Wednesday, October 28, 2020. 1:00 PM. Webinar: Climate Change Adaptation in Coastal Communities: Finding Courage, Compassion, and Commitment to Act in the Arctic and South Pacific. Victoria Herrmann, The Arctic Institute. Sponsored by NOAA EcoFOCI. More information here.
The daunting drumbeat of recent climate change reports can make it difficult not to feel hopeless and helpless in adapting to the climate impacts we can no longer avoid. Victoria Herrmann will discuss climate change adaptation work in the Arctic and South Pacific, using the lens of two current projects: Rise Up To Rising Tides and the Arctic Migration in Harmony Research Coordination Network. She will speak to the challenges and pathways to engage with on-the-ground capacity building and climate policy in the U.S. and U.S. Territory Communities from Alaska to American Samoa. In particular, Victoria will create a space for discussion on how everyone, from students to senior scholars, can commit to climate change action in their work and bridge the gap between research and community action.
