The Collaboratory for Coastal Adaptation over Space and Time (C-CoAST; a new network of established coastal practitioners, stakeholders and researchers) is hosting virtual listening sessions with coastal residents and stakeholders to better understand their long-term priorities and to explore the ways that short-term decision making can support or undermine these priorities.
C-CoAST invites you to join them for one of these sessions to share your perspectives about the priorities and concerns that are part of decision making in coastal communities. What they learn by listening to you will inform collaborative efforts to assist NC coastal communities in meeting future challenges.
The listening sessions build upon feedback and discussions that occurred at the Regional Resilience Workshops (northeast and southeast) and Summit organized by the North Carolina Division of Coastal Management and the North Carolina Coastal Federation in 2019. Whether or not you participated in the earlier effort, we hope you will join C-CoAST to continue the conversation!
The listening sessions will be held online via Zoom, include small breakout groups, and last 90 minutes. We also will ask participants to complete a short pre-workshop survey (10-15 minutes) that will help us kick off the conversation.
They are offering multiple sessions to accommodate different schedules; please register for the one that works best for you:
Tues. Feb. 9; 6:30-8:00 pm (Register here)
Wed. Feb. 24; 9-10:30 am (Register here)
TBD: An additional session may be offered in early March (announcement to follow)
