TCBES Natural and Cultural Resource Seminar Series

Location: Wentworth, Room 1

Seminar speaker: Scott Laursen, Pacific Island Climate Adaptation Science Center, UH Hilo

Seminar Title: Engaging Collaborative Action through Socio-Ecological Change

Abstract: Scott Laursen, co-production coordinator at the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center, will offer an exploration of his professional journey that has centered on engaging multiple knowledge forms. In the second half of the presentation he will share the founding principles and developmental path of a knowledge co-production program on Hawai'i Island called the UH Hilo Manager Climate Corps. The knowledge co-production process can be applied at any stakeholder scale and effectively builds diverse professional networks that are inherently powerful in maximizing communities' adaptive capacities during socio-ecological change (e.g. climate change, land-use change, invasive species impacts, or cultural change). A pivotal reason for this is that in-person collaboration engages multiple knowledge forms across diverse world views. Complex socio-ecological issues such as climate change are often primarily addressed through technical problem solving methods which do not meaningfully consider diverse social perceptions, local cultural norms and values, experiences and diverse world views. To better account for these underlying drivers of human behavior, the UH Hilo Manager Climate Corps unites natural and cultural resource managers, policy professionals, researchers and communities through the creation of actionable science products within climate science. Local managers regularly experience discrete landscapes and seascapes, and participate in the social norms and values of communities that utilize such ecosystems. Directly involving local professional networks within every stage of the scientific method roots research products within the place-based experiences of these networks and increases the probability that these products will be utilized.
