Many jobs in coastal communities depend on marine resources and access to waterways. These jobs can be vulnerable to hazards like coastal flooding and lake level changes. This course will help participants tell a compelling story about the importance of their waterfront by identifying local marine jobs and using local economic data. These stories are helpful when compiling information for comprehensive coastal resilience planning efforts, grant applications, and outreach projects.
There is no cost for the training itself, however, participants are responsible for their own lunch. The training is located in the heart of Boston, in close proximity to various food options, including a 10 minute walk to both Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Quincy Market (both with a variety of sit-down and take-out dining options). See below for the exact location.
NOTE: The training sign-up is separate from general registration. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to a form that will include sign-up for the NOAA training and half-day field trips.
