MCC Presents in Collaboration Across Worldviews CASC Session at 10th Annual National Adaptation Forum

April 23-25, 2019

In April 2019, the Manager Climate Corps program took part in a CASC session at the 10th Annual National Adaptation Forum in Madison, Wisconsin.  The CASC session was titled, “Collaboration and Adaptation Across Worldviews: case studies in co-producing and implementing science for management.” This session explores diverse case studies across the CASC network in which scientists and managers have engaged in knowledge co-production, and in some cases, have begun to track and evaluate the use of their products by managers. The session also invited the audience to further explore knowledge co-production by ending with an open panel discussion with all presenters. For more details about this session, please visit the conference website here.
