From February 12th to 15th, a few of MACH researchers attended NOAA’s bi-annual Social Coast Forum in Charleston, South Carolina. Lisa Auermuller, the Administrative Director of MACH, joined a panel of seven other of the National Science Foundation’s Coastlines and Peoples grant participants to discuss lessons learned since 2019 when NSF began the CoPe program. The session was entitled “Lessons from working at the intersection of natural, human-built, and social systems: A dialogue with eight coastlines and people (CoPe) projects”. Janine Barr, and Jeanne Herb, both MACH participants and Rutgers University staff, were also at the Forum.
