Often there are gaps in the complex interface between science, knowledge, and practice in addressing coastal and marine issues.
We seek to understand why, what, and how individuals and communities perceive and make decisions about coastal and marine topics and issues.
We seek to support public learning and informed decision making through educational programming, product development, research, and stakeholder engagement.
Understanding communities of place and practice, their beliefs and valuation, and why certain decisions are made will support the development of strategies to address some of the challenges noted in the other thematic areas, such as acute and chronic hazards, coastal development, and evolving fisheries needs and issues.
