More than Maps: Social Science Skills for a Seaweed Situation

10th November 2020 invite only - times tbc
Workshop

About this event

Managing Seaweed through More than Maps” is a co-development project that fosters transferable skills for college students. This free workshop explores seaweed management as a climate change adaptation case study. Two hours are spent on coding skills using remotely sensed data, and two hours focus on the role for social science methods in adaptation. Using seaweed as a unique example, the researchers aim to learn from the students what skills are useful in ground-level climate change adaptation and how skills are best transferred. The students gain coding and data analysis skills, with possible future support for their EPQ.
