Join the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences for a seminar on creating an environment to support coastal communities’ responses to socio-environmental changes. Using case studies from North Carolina and Jamaica, this presentation will explore how expanding our conceptualization of the variables that influence how communities respond and adapt to changes — including historical, social and environmental dynamics — may support more sustainable transitions.

Speaker: Eric Wade is an assistant professor of environmental social science at East Carolina University and an assistant research scientist at the Coastal Studies Institute. His primary expertise is studying human-environment interactions within coastal and marine systems. His research focuses on understanding the non-monetary factors influencing individual and collective decision-making in response to socio-ecological changes.
