Building a Weather-Ready Nation

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) is presenting a webinar on Wednesday June 1, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PDT on Collaboration Opportunities Between the AMS and Spiritual/Faith-Based Organizations to Build a Weather-Ready Nation.


The webinar aims to "bring together perspectives on the roles of spiritual/faith-based communities and organizations in building a Weather-Ready Nation, and identify opportunities to work together to strengthen community resilience from high-impact weather events."


It is part of a Finding Common Ground Among Science, Spirituality, and Environmentalism Series co-sponsored by Interfaith Power & Light and Creation Justice Ministries to build a weather-ready nation.


Presenter:

Doug Hilderbrand, National Weather Service HQ

Panelists:

Dr. Carlos Javier Martinez, NCAR/AMS COSMOS

Bruce Jones, Midland Radio

Rev. Susan Hendershot, Interfaith Power and Light Director


The Q&A, chat file, anonymous survey results, and attendee list from this webinar will be shared with its organizers.


"Spiritual and faith-based houses of worship are often places of safety, volunteerism, and crisis management during and after high-impact weather events (e.g., hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, flash flooding). Hence, spiritual and faith-based communities can be an integral part of Building a Weather-Ready Nation."
