  • Description:
    Four focus areas were identified for this workshop held October 24-25, 2019 in Kodiak, Alaska. Participants were encouraged to attend all or a section of the workshop that meets their interest. The four areas were 1) fisheries futures, 2) food security and subsistence, 3) infrastructure and energy, and 4) culture and wellness. The workshop led with fisheries futures as fisheries are a keystone of the local economy and a way of life for many Kodiak residents. In the first section of fisheries futures the small groups used what they just learned to think about what Kodiak needs to do for monitoring local ocean and river conditions, and how to prepare for shifts in the fishery in the future such as new opportunities as species shift, or as abundance of key commercial species decline. Participants in the important topic of food security and subsistence discussed how to grow more food locally and especially provide opportunities for more local markets and sharing opportunities for food, as well as local food production and processing. On the second day as participants looked out at the wind turbines on the hill overlooking the city, they talked about infrastructure and energy. The City of Kodiak meets over 98% of its energy needs through wind and hydropower. The discussion then focused on innovations to maximize this capacity to reduce fuel oil and diesel use, and more importantly how to create and expand innovations in energy production for other communities on the island. Finally, the workshop ended with a discussion on culture and wellness. This topic was instrumental in wrapping up the workshop by bringing home the goal of finding ways to build a more livable, equitable, and healthy island community for the future. After some moving presentations the group discussed how to build more connections locally through festivals, community centers, and other actions recognizing that the strength of Kodiak is diversity. This short workshop report details the discussions and the hope of participants is that this is just the start of a conversation.
