NC - Resilience Network Seeks Resident Feedback

A new network that aims to address challenges in coastal resilience is hosting due to high demand a third virtual listening session 9-10:30 a.m. March 16 for residents to share their thoughts on decision-making in coastal communities.

The Collaboratory for Coastal Adaptation over Space and Time, or C-CoAST, made up of coastal practitioners, stakeholders and researchers, hosted two virtual listening sessions in February with residents and stakeholders to better understand long-term priorities, and look at how short-term decision making can support or undermine priorities.

What the network learns during these sessions will help inform collaborative efforts to assist North Carolina coastal communities in meeting future challenges.

Register online or visit https://c-coast.org/activities/listening-sessions.Organizers encourage encourage attendance for the full session that will be held via Zoom, last 90 minutes, and include breakout groups. Participants will also be asked to complete a short survey that takes about 15 minutes before the workshop to kick off the conversation.

The listening sessions build upon feedback and discussions that occurred at the Regional Resilience Workshops held in the northeast and southeast and Summit organized by the North Carolina Division of Coastal Management and the North Carolina Coastal Federation in 2019.  C-CoAST is a Research Coordination Network funded by the National Science Foundation.
