October 29, 2020 – October, 30, 2020 – Maritime Risk Symposium’s Evergreen Program – The Critical Infrastructure Resilience Institute invites students to participate in the Maritime Risk Symposium’s Evergreen Program.
The Evergreen Program is the Coast Guard’s Strategic Foresight Initiative, tasked with looking over-the-horizon to inform current planning and better prepare the Coast Guard for an uncertain and unpredictable future. Through the use of scenario-based exercises and workshops involving a diverse group of stakeholders, common strategic needs or key success factors can be identified across multiple plausible scenarios to better inform long-term strategic planning efforts.
Evergreen@MRS2020 is a joint venture that combines strategy and foresight with the greater maritime community of seasoned industry professionals, academic centers and national labs, maritime students, and government/NGO regulatory bodies. This year’s event, hosted virtually via the University’s Microsoft Teams platform, will invite participants to enter one of four future scenarios and identify tomorrow’s maritime infrastructure vulnerabilities and their implications to prosperity and security. MRS2020 will create teams that balance a diversity of experience, combining students and professionals in an interactive workshop designed to drive multi-disciplinary perspectives and strategic thinking.
Scheduled for Thursday, October 29 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Central Time and concluding on Friday, October 30 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m Central Time. This is a workshop – not a seminar. Team members actively participate and should commit to both sessions, as they build on each other.
The Evergreen Program registration is limited to 25 participants. Please register using the link below if you are able to commit to the read ahead documents and the times listed above.
If you haven’t done so already, please remember to register for the symposium at the MRS 2020 webpage.
