Description

Seminar 5

New risk knowledges and social learning – platforms and social networks for knowledge sharing and capacity building

We are pleased to announce a one day workshop exploring the interface between different knowledges and social learning in the context of climate change and extreme weather. The event is co-hosted by: The George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling, University of South Wales, Cardiff and the Centre for Water, Communities and Resilience, University of the West of England, Bristol, working with a number of individuals and agencies.

Date/time: 10:30-16:00, Friday 19th October 2018 (10.00AM for coffee & networking)

Questions to be explored:

• What are the new risk knowledges? (their conceptual framing; links to practice).
• What does (or could) social learning mean in this context? What are its settings? (opportunities; challenges of these?)
• How ephemeral are the social networks so established, and is the learning transient?
• What are the opportunities and challenges of different platforms and social networks during emergencies and within the wider Extreme Weather Adaptation Cycle?
• What are the impacts of new and changing media practices on social learning for extreme weather adaptation?
• How are these platforms and social networks being used by different interest groups? How could they be used now/future –with what incentives and inhibitors?
• What are the research needs and priorities – conceptual; methodological? How is research informing policy and practice?

Speakers will be from academia, policy and practice including Civic Society, Welsh government, Resilience Agencies and Academia. Confirmed speakers include: Robert Knowles (Senior Climate Resilience Advisor, Welsh Government); Dr Joanne Garde-Hansen (Culture, Media and Communication, University of Warwick); and Dr Joseph Sobol (George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling, University of South Wales). More details to follow shortly. The seminar will have a strong focus on group discussion and participation.

Places are limited. To register please do so before 30th September. Early registration is highly recommended to guarantee a place.
