People and Place: Exploring Values and Relationships Between Communities, Fisheries and Ocean
Tuesday, Sept. 22, 12-1:30 p.m.
Speakers: Monica Engel, OFI Module I PhD Candidate; Gillian McNaughton, OFI Module I Master’s student
The values and relationships between communities, fisheries and ocean are well recognized but difficult to describe or quantify. Thus, they are often not properly considered in management and decisionmaking. A better understanding of a range of values and worldviews of communities about fisheries and ocean and how they perceive their role and relationship with the natural surrounding is imperative for improving governance. The observation and knowledge of the communities about the place they live, and the changes taken place around them, provide valuable information for the development of sustainable fisheries and ocean. This webinar offers two methodological approaches applied in different contexts to demonstrate the intricacies of values for natural resources, and illustrate how to explore the people and place relationship.
This webinar is part of ‘Governance in a Changing North Atlantic Ocean: A Webinar Series for Sustainable Ocean and Viable Fishing Communities‘, which will be be open to the public and held at noon (Newfoundland time) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from September 15 to October 1, 2020.
