Fire & Ice is a unique dinner and dialogue evening that will foster new ways of thinking about wildfire. It will feature a keynote presentation from Toddi Steelman, PhD who is the Stanback Dean of the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University, followed by a cross-cultural dialogue and Q & A session to inspire critical thinking about the values and perspectives that drive wildfire management.
When it comes time to making tough decisions about what to protect in the line of fire - what motivates our decisions? Our planning? Large fires that cross jurisdictional boundaries are predicted to be the new norm, but what drives decision-making when officials are faced with large wildfires that cross national, provincial, state and even cultural boundaries?
Dr. Steelman’s research spans many environmental and resource management issues, including forest management and planning. She is best known for her work on community adaptation to wildfires and how communities and agencies can interact for more effective wildfire management.
The evening will include a cocktail reception, cash bar and buffet dinner.
