Rising Voices Changing Coasts Hub

Point of Contact:

LiKEN is partnering with Haskell Indian Nations University, the NSF National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and many more in the NSF-funded Rising Voices, Changing Coasts Hub. An exciting new initiative, funded by the National Science Foundation for $20 million over 5 years, the Hub is located at Haskell Indian Nations University, bringing together Indigenous knowledge-holders from diverse coastal regions and  university-trained scientists to address the impacts of a changing climate on their coastal communities. LiKEN is a major sub-awardee in this knowledge-sharing initiative. The Hub includes community partners in the four coastal regions where the project is focused: Alaska, Hawai’i, Louisiana, and Puerto Rico. 

The RVCC Hub serves as a trailblazing example of undertaking convergence research, a means of solving the most challenging and complex issues that face society by bringing together people from across disciplines, each of whom bring their own methodologies, techniques, and expertise to contribute to the solution. The Hub is founded on partnerships built for over a decade, including through the Rising Voices Center for Indigenous and Earth Sciences, which has been incubating collaborations to address the impacts of climate change. Rising Voices is co-administered by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research ,NSF NCAR, and LiKEN, in partnership with Haskell Indian Nations University, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management, NSF National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), and the Indigenous Speaker Series.
