We are creating a new program to bring expertise on climate adaptation and heritage preservation directly to vulnerable communities and need your help with our branding message! The new program, Rise Up to Rising Tides, will work like Catchafire for communities - pairing skills-based volunteers with communities in need of climate adaptation At a time when Washington has turned its back on climate change, there has been an increase in both community need for assistance and desire to help. Our platform will connect communities like Shishmaref Alaska and Point Aux Chenes Louisiana with volunteer professionals looking to donate their skills.
We currently have a dedicated staff person which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a vision and mission and the ability to provide any other information you need.
Over the past year, our Managing Director traveled across America as a National Geographic Explorer visiting the country’s most environmentally vulnerable communities The idea for Rising Tides came directly from 300 in-person interviews with local leaders to better understand how climate change is impacting America’s coastal communities.
TAI envisions a world in which the Arctic’s diverse and complex sources of insecurity are identified, understood, and innovatively resolved. We hope to achieve this by informing Arctic policy across the circumpolar region through objective, multidisciplinary, and innovative social science research. We do this through publishing high-quality, open access research on a range of issues relating to security in the High North; providing innovative policy analysis and recommendations to policymakers a
The Arctic Institute is an independent international institute dedicated to research of and engagement in the many dimensions of Arctic insecurity.
