Webinar: Risk Communication in the Post-Sandy Era
11 a.m. to Noon 
Oct. 29 will mark the fifth anniversary of Superstorm Sandy’s landfall in New Jersey. Residents of the region had never before dealt with a storm of its magnitude, and that lack of experience influenced people’s perceptions of the dangers it posed and how they responded – in some cases with disastrous consequences. Sandy yielded many lessons on what information was and was not effective in prompting residents to make decisions that protected themselves, their loved ones and their properties. The Monmouth University Urban Coast Institute (UCI) and Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean(MARCO) will host a free webinar on Aug. 15 at 11 a.m. that explores best practices for communicating the risks that major coastal storms present to the public. The webinar will feature three speakers who have made important contributions to our understanding of effective risk communication since Sandy: Rachel Hogan Carr, Executive Director of the Nurture Nature Center; Michael Oppegaard, Emergency Management Coordinator for the Monmouth County (N.J.) Sheriff's Office; and Sarah Watson, who led the development of NOAA’s 2016 Risk Communications Basics guidebook.  More information

Collingswood Community Center
30 West Collings Ave. Collingswood, NJ
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds — worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94 seed varieties have disappeared. A cadre of 10 agrichemical companies, including Syngenta, Bayer, and Monsanto, controls over two-thirds of the global seed market, reaping unprecedented profits. Farmers and others battle to defend the future of our food. Film will be followed by discussion with seed librarians Jeff Quattrone and Keith Monahan.
