Our Future Coast: Climate Change, the Global Economy, and the Role of Community
Robert Snyder, PhD., President, Island Institute
About the lecture
Communities are largely absent from national discussions of how to address climate change. Every day our towns and cities take practical steps to solve global problems through community member choices and behaviors. Island Institute President Robert Snyder will discuss the skills communities must have and how the Island Institute is currently working with communities to build the muscle needed to deal with climate change.
Rob has been leading the Island Institute as president for six years and has a background and Ph.D. in cultural anthropology. His research and writing focus on community economic development and the cultural politics of natural resource management.
