The purpose of the annual Transatlantic Science Week (TSW) is to promote enhanced cooperation between Canadian, American and Norwegian stakeholders in research, innovation and higher education. TSW is an arena where different stakeholders can meet with the purpose of developing long-term collaborations or partnerships. The conference also hopes to strengthen the linkages that currently exist between the research and education domains. Finally, TSW also provides an excellent arena for dialogue between the research communities and policymakers.
This series of three workshops will include presentations and discussions of how coastal erosion on the North Slope of Alaska impacts local communities, potential responses to those impacts, related cultural and economic factors, and best practices for a long-term observing (LTO) network that could contribute to community planning and response. Ann Gibbs of the U.S. Geological Survey will be speaking on regional shoreline changes and coastal erosion hazards.

Together Toward Tomorrow - Conservaration, Partners, and Landscapes
Thu, 10/23/2014 to Fri, 10/24/2014
About the Workshop:
Conservation innovation is woven through our nation’s heritage. It is today and will be for decades and centuries to come an essential element of our future. Large landscape collaborative conservation is a fresh approach to the conservation challenges of the 21st century, linking public, private, non- profit and academic resources in novel, strategic, and enduring ways.
This series of three workshops will include presentations and discussions of how coastal erosion on the North Slope of Alaska impacts local communities, potential responses to those impacts, related cultural and economic factors, and best practices for a long-term observing (LTO) network that could contribute to community planning and response. Anne Garland of Applied Research in Environmental Sciences Nonprofit, Inc., will be speaking on community-based monitoring of critical coastal infrastructure for the City of Barrow.
The Canadian Risk and Hazard Network holds an annual conference each year. This year the event is being held in Toronto, Canada. As part of this conference David Diabo (Assembly of First Nations) and Brenda Murphy (Wilfrid Laurier University) are running a series of five special sessions called: Promoting Aboriginal Resilience: Sharing Knowledge to Increase Disaster Risk Reduction. In the first session we are partnering with the Arctic Observing Network and Applied Research in Environmental Sciences Nonprofit, Inc. to offer a webinar of the first presentation (see details below).
