About the lecture

Responses to climate change need to be well planned. With accelerating rates of changes this need involves difficult conversations. This talk will touch on the systemic opportunities and challenges of coastal climate change adaptation in England and Canada.

About the speaker

Glen Smith is a social scientist with more than 10 years’ experience in studying marine and coastal issues. Glen is currently a Visiting Fellow with the Ocean Frontier Institute. During this appointment, he is examining approaches to climate change adaptation at the coast in southeast England and in Nova Scotia.

He completed his PhD in natural resource management at UiT, The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø, where he focused on marine spatial planning (MSP) in Scotland, especially on process transparency, participation, and power dynamics in the governance of MSP.

He has since held post-doctoral positions in Cork, Ireland, and in London researching the social elements of climate change adaptation.
