The SNEP Network Leadership Exchange
In March 2020, SNEP Network partner Throwe Environmental, LLC launched an innovative new technical assistance program: the Leadership Exchange. The Leadership Exchange uses three distinct, though interrelated, components — a community assessment, podcasts, and webinars — to address community resilience challenges. The Leadership Exchange brings together leaders on climate resilience from across the country for peer-to-peer discussions about successes, challenges, lessons learned, and best practices. The first Leadership Exchange provided assistance for climate resilience financing and sustainable development issues facing the town of Wareham, Massachusetts.
Following the success of the Wareham Leadership Exchange, we’re building on the leadership exchange format to focus on the experiences and stories of Tribal Elders, leaders, and members from The Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head Aquinnah. With a series of podcasts, the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head Aquinnah share the changes they have witnessed in their climate as well as potential actions to address the changes.
