Onwards: Identifying and Overcoming Barriers to Action

Tues. 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., Centennial F

Why, if this is so easy, is it so hard? What is stopping us from taking decades of knowledge and moving it into action?

There has been significant progress in producing research and knowledge on hazards and disasters, yet many lessons still remain unlearned and unapplied. In this session, panelists will discuss barriers to action and will describe innovative ways that knowledge is being transformed into actions meant to create lasting and meaningful social change.
