Please join us as we gather Arctic researchers from across New England to pursue NEAN goals to:
1) Provide a forum for sharing the wealth of expertise in Arctic research and engagement across New England
2) Anticipate and respond to links between Arctic change and the eastern coast of North America.
The theme of this event will be "Engaging North Atlantic communities on issues of Arctic change." The morning will invite speakers to share context specific practices for community engaged research followed by a discussion of cultural changes within our teams and institutions needed to support co-production of knowledge. In the afternoon, the UNE-North team will guide participants through facilitated network-building exercises, encouraging participants to share their stories, motivations, and expertise in order to identify connections and strengths in how NEAN can best promote community-engaged research. 
Please contact Holly Parker ( or Kathy Duderstadt ( with questions.
