On June 21, we hosted and co-organized this seminar about “Less-heard voices within civil society for resilience: engaging diverse groups in knowledge exchange and capacity building.”
This event was part of a nationwide series of seminars on resilience and civil society being led by Lindsey McEwen at UWE. It considered our perceptions and misconceptions of vulnerability and how social justice can be incorporated into adaptive responses.

We were pleased to have colleagues from resilience, communities, policy, academia, and civil society to help us consider the following questions:
We were also delighted to have a talk from Robin Leichenko from Rutgers University, who shared her experience of promoting equity in New York City’s adaptation planning. You can find her presentation here.
