This year’s meeting continued our three-year conversation on how the UCAR community can contribute to making our nation more resilient to severe weather and a changing climate. We have talked about university-city partnerships and toolkits and interesting ways to combine science and art to improving our teaching in the classroom and public settings. This year we will focus on workforce issues. In particular, creating the right leaders and workforce for the future given skills needs, changing demographics, and expected weather and climate-related stresses.
The purpose of this panel was to solicit ideas from the members on whether our community should be considering alliances to tackle the kind of workforce and training issues being raised by the keynotes and the following panel members:
