Managed Retreat? Resilience, Relocation and Climate Justice Keynote by Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation
This virtual conference will address a range of scientific, social, policy and governance issues around managed retreat, also known as strategic realignment and planned relocation.
The conference, a major initiative of the Columbia Climate School and its Earth Institute, will bring together stakeholders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors, together with academics, scientists, and community representatives, to help develop a common understanding of this complex issue, and move the needle toward equitable solutions.
A major emphasis will be on issues of environmental justice, in recognition that the people most impacted by decisions around retreat have a key role in these conversations. Therefore, they called on Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) and a member of the Climigration Network and the Higher Ground Council of the Anthropocene Alliance to keynote for the event.
