As our coastal communities grapple with the impacts of rising seas, coastal erosion, and increased flooding, how can we respond in ways that foster equity and build resilience? One strategy is to broaden participation in planning and decision-making processes. Learn more about the practice of meaningfully engaging the public in dialogue, deliberation, and decision-making surrounding climate change with the Wells Reserve's Margaret Davidson Graduate Fellow, Jessica Brunacini.
Support for the Wells Reserve's Ted Exford Climate Stewards lecture series is provided by Dave & Loretta (Exford) Hoglund.
