Stories from the Coast by Coastal Stories

This idea is really neat! We love the idea of using submissions on history, resilience and impacts of climate change and love the idea of using many types of media (stories, images, poems, art, etc). We have a few clarifying questions: will contributors know what to submit under the "resilience" header? It seems like most content might get submitted under the other categories, but website organizers could move stuff they thought were good examples of “resilience” into that category. We would also like more information on your plan for how to engage people and encourage them to participate. How will people who are not contributing content be encouraged to use the site? How will this this lead to people taking action?

I wish you the best! Please, check my proposal in Waste Management Contest, named "REACC: Recycled Debris for Adaptation to Climate Change"; and I would apreciate your support as I supported your proposal.

We really liked the concept of using art and stories to reach a diverse audience, but too many questions remain about how exactly this would be implemented. This proposal would be much stronger with a greater level of detail about how the project would be executed, and how the community of participants would be reached or recruited. Importantly, while sharing stories can be extremely powerful, it was not clear how these stories would be translated into actions that lead to more resilient communities. In short, this is a wonderful idea, but in need of more fleshing out especially about how to this would contribute to community resilience.
