The Climigration Network, an initiative of CBI, is excited to announce the upcoming June 4th webinar “Catalyzing Community-led Projects on Managed Retreat,” which will feature the five 2018 Climigration Awardees as they highlight the work accomplished with their 2018 funding, share lessons learned, and outline their next steps and vision for their work moving forward.

The webinar will take place on Tuesday, June 4 at 3:00-4:00pm EDT. To register, please click here.

Background

The Climigration Network, with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, awarded $7,500 in 2018 to five organizations to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and fund innovative community-led approaches to the challenge of managed retreat. While every relocation is unique to its people, culture, and needs, the Climigration Network believes that as communities seriously consider managed retreat, or undertake it, they can learn from the successes and obstacles of others.

The five winners are situated across the United States, and work across a range of fields, including human rights, applied theater, community advocacy, grassroots organizing, and citizen science. Their approaches are creative, instructive, and uniquely influenced by their local context. Each project focused on using the award to complete one or two small but pivotal steps in a larger vision, positioning them for further support and engagement.
