With this two-day workshop, we seek to promote scholarly and practice-oriented contributions rooted in knowledge sharing around experiences with climate adaptation and relocation. Participants will include members of the Isle de Jean Charles, LA band of the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw tribe, members of the Yup’ik people from Newtok, AK, practitioners from Louisiana and Alaska, and scholars working on resettlement issues at MIT.
