Coastal Resilience Workshop: Sharing Indigenous Knowledge and Experience

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 9:00am to 5:30pm

MIT W20-306 & 9-255

Hosted by Janelle Knox-Hayes, at the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, MIT

Sponsored by the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative, the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative, and MIT CoLab

With this two-day workshop, we seek to promote scholarly and practice-oriented contributions rooted in knowledge sharing around experiences with climate adaptation and relocation. Participants will include members of the Isle de Jean Charles, LA band of the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw tribe, members of the Yup'ik people from Newtok, AK, practitioners from Louisiana and Alaska, and scholars working on resettlement issues at MIT. More broadly, this workshop will provide an opportunity for dialogue and knowledge sharing to better scope out the challenges to equitable relocation planning and the opportunities for uncovering latent and unaddressed values in the planning process.
