6/15 University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez
Those were undergraduate students?!!! Did they really just do their first ever English presentation for this project?!!! The University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez students presented a grass roots community survey study looking at indicators of resiliency and effects that the hurricane had on community residents in various regions. It was phenomenal. Their research really helped us understand the local level perspective and issues in regard to hurricane response and recovery. This meeting highlighted the need for collaboration and knowledge sharing between universities which is the intent of IKEGREEN. The interaction with other students is something we want to cultivate and believe an online platform will be the next best thing to keep in contact and share information with partners in PR and around the world.
