Past Initiative Events and Recordings

Dr. Po-Yi Hung – 2021-22 Fulbright Scholar and Luce East Asia Fellow, National
Humanities Center and UNC-Chapel Hill; Associate Professor,
Department of Geography, National Taiwan University

Abstract:
What does the “green” mean in green energy? In Taiwan, the planned site for offshore wind farms overlaps with both oyster farms and the habitat of Taiwanese Humpback Dolphins, categorized as a critically endangered species by the IUCN. This has resulted in a clash between conserving the oyster farming landscape, protecting an endangered species, and developing green energy against climate change. Facing this dilemma, this talk reconsiders the spatial struggles over the “green” label affixed to offshore wind farm projects, and other forms of green energy in general.

Recording coming soon.

Learn about NC’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency (NCORR) and the NC Coastal Federation, their work, and how they partner with university faculty to do engaged research with communities. NCORR will discuss projects currently underway, where communities need help, and how NCORR has partnered with faculty to date. The Coastal Federation will also share examples of their collaborations with faculty and communities, and both will discuss opportunities coming in the future.
