To continue December’s roundtable conversation on behavior change, February’s roundtable brings together a group of scholarly researchers with experience in stakeholder engagement and capacity building. This month’s conversation explores how to incorporate a social science lens into environmental management work. Guest speakers will provide insights about their experiences, avenues for future improvement, and share some recent success stories.
Join us on Wednesday, February 15th, from 12-1 pm ET when diverse social scientists come together to host this month’s CRC Roundtable for conversations about pathways to 1) use social science in adaptive management of Chesapeake Bay restoration progress and 2) building long lasting relationships among practitioner and (social science) researcher communities to advance the application of social science and better address complex natural resource challenges.

About CRC Roundtable
The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) comprises seven research and education institutions around the Chesapeake Bay, convening with the goal of using science to inform management. We launched the CRC Roundtable, a monthly virtual seminar series, to host targeted, inclusive, and informed conversations matching scientific advances and management needs in a way that moves us collectively forward toward decision-making for effective and sustainable management of the Chesapeake Bay, its watershed, and its living resources. Learn more about what we accomplished in 2021 in our annual report and watch our 50th anniversary video.
The lunchtime seminars will invite a diverse range of researchers, managers, and other professionals to have timely conversations around topics relevant to the Chesapeake partnership. The seminars also build connectivity across participating organizations and identify ways to increase our collective competency for decision-making.
