NSF Convergence Accelerator Workshop on Biocultural Restoration


May 6, 2021

Colleagues:
 
Please consider registering and attending, as well as passing the announcement along to colleagues in your networks.
 
You’re invited to Coastal Biocultural Restoration as a Nexus of Innovation (www.bcrworkshop.com), a virtual workshop taking place May 14-17, 2021, with opening day protocol, orientation, and keynote on May 13, 2021, from 2:30-4pm HST. 
 
In the face of unprecedented challenges, we need Indigenous ecological knowledge to restore the biocultural systems of coasts and waterways. Practitioner-driven biocultural restoration in HawaiĘ»i and around the world, offers opportunities to innovate in resilience, data-driven natural resource management, regenerative economies, and inclusive STEM education. 
 
This active-participant workshop brings together Indigenous and local communities, scientists, nonprofits, corporations, government, and more to develop project ideas and define priorities for use-inspired research and application centered around the process and practice of biocultural restoration. We want stakeholders, practitioners, and experts at the table.

Sincerely,
 
Terry Quinn
Division Director, OCE
