California Social Coast Forum
For the last decade, every two years in February, coastal practitioners have been gathering in Charleston, South Carolina at the Social Coast Forum to highlight the importance of social sciences in coastal management. Unfortunately, the global pandemic has changed our plans for the Forum in 2022. Instead of an in-person event in Charleston, the Forum will happen through locally-hosted gatherings and you’re invited! In our world now, it is so important to try to reach people where they are—in the in their communities and regions. Happening across the nation, the Local Gatherings will do just that. These will be spaces for participants to have deep discussions on locally relevant coastal issues, social science methods and practices, and living in coastal communities.

In coordination with NOAA and the National Estuarine Research Reserve Association (NERRA), the three California NERR Coastal Training Programs (San Francisco Bay, Elkhorn Slough, and Tijuana River) are hosting a Local Gathering for coastal professionals in California. This regional event will feature case studies from experts and interactive opportunities for connecting among coastal colleagues.

Join us on March 10, 2022 from 10:00am-12:30pm.

Preceding this event, a training will be offered on Social Science Basics for Coastal Managers. Please see the separate training registration link below.
