Concordia University, JOE, Canada discussed on America Adapts the Climate Change Podcast


This is a lot of really useful information in I think it's gonna compliment. This is part of our three part flood episode series that American doing with World Wildlife Fund. And is there any resources people listening to what we're talking about here that you would recommend any online resources any particular? Specific things that you'd recommend. Would it be the little to infighter for me to say that I plug the plug green? We linked to weed leak it every showed every episode that Joe. So it'll be there. You don't have to worry about that one. You can plug it. We may cut it out later, but we will always take shameless promotion. I really would. Yeah. I really would would say that. I mean, this very genuinely that when I did have the opportunity earlier this summer to weed the entire pink ice cover to cover. I found it to be very helpful piece. You can't cover every topic in there, or course. But I do think that all of the different sections in guide that are route to community engagement citizen science monitoring evaluation said guide itself provides a lot of different sources for people to read more. And so I think that to me would be really the primary document resources available right now civically for commuting gauge for for nature based methods. But we're also if I if I can sort of plug a little bit of the work that we're doing it semantic reviews of the evidence on community engagement in community impact, social health impacts all nature base methods for flood management until refining there that there isn't much really. Useful information there at the moment. A lot of it is talking about the need for it. But the actual evidence is quite air. So that's something that we're gathering together hopefully able to share in the near future. But I think that one of if I could just sort of make the point that I don't think the research that are to be tailored very specifically to this topic of nature based methods for plug with management a lot of these children vailable on across the spirit of community based work that has been going on for hundreds of years. And so there are many great resources in the terms. I would sort of throughout their participatory rural appraisal PR a community based participatory research or CB PR. These are really two methods help people this is not about academic. I retire research that actually help organizations are really tried to do work with communities as opposed to just during for Kenedy. Thank you. Thank you so much. This was incredible information. I think it's really complementary to some the other information we've been getting these interviews, but really create your time in in the work that you do having any on any final words now. Thank you. This has been great so informative and inspiring. And yes, it does align nicely with some of our other discussions in further resources will be able to share with you, particularly in terms of storytelling. So thank you. Okay. Perfect. That's great. Great. I like saying that. Hit actors. I'm talking with professor Elizabeth Miller a documentary maker and professor in communication studies based at concordia university in Montreal Canada. Welcome to the podcast. Liz, thank him. All right. So you're involved with with a lot of things. But I guess first off I just wanna start with the shoreline project, and could you really summarize what's that all about? Well, sometimes I describe the shoreline project as an interactive storybook or an alternative tests textbook for the future. And whole idea was to bring solution based stories about issues around climate change and sustainability to a form that would be open successful and of interest to wide audiences like students or community groups. And so in the project, we have forty three unique short films that play out along our global coast, and we found inspiring portraits of people making chain. Change along the coast from nine different countries is this just something like a project you were able to get funded out of the university or they're sort of external partners because it seemed like it's a pretty good looking series of short films and such basically in Canada as a university..
