RISING is a collaborative multimedia research project, using photography and oral history to better understand coastal communities’ beliefs and understandings regarding climate change. What changes have coastal residents witnessed due to recurring coastal hazards? How have they adapted to the changes? How have these past experiences with hazards affected their perceptions of future climate change and sea level rise?
Join us Tuesday, August 14 for a “Community Conversation” with watermen, teachers, planners, scientists and residents from the Chesapeake Bay, the Outer Banks and coastal communities who live in a “rising” world. Learn more about how our world is changing and how we, like generations before us, are adapting to the world around us.
This project is made possible by a Community Collaborative Research Grant, a program of North Carolina Sea Grant in partnership with the William R. Kenan Jr. Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science at NC State University. Go to www.risingnc.com for more information.
