Cultural Heritage & Coastal Humanities

The Cultural Heritage & Coastal Humanities theme explores cultural values and stewardship roles of coastal communities. It will highlight the unique position of people who depend on coastal resources, and live and work in areas of high risk. Our communities can be helped with science-based solutions and management options that can respond to emerging and existing challenges, build resiliency, and is relevant to lives and livelihoods.
