Dr. Kathleen P. Bell participates in affordable and sustainable housing event at the Island Institute

SOE Professor Kathleen P. Bell participated in an ILEAD: Housing Training Event to meet and exchange ideas with others working to create affordable and sustainable housing options in coastal Maine. The training, hosted by the Island Institute in partnership with Maine SeaGrant and Grow Smart Maine on September 25th, featured organizations and tools in place to support housing options in island communities. Dr. Bell especially enjoyed the networking opportunities with residents, leaders, and professionals. “Hearing about the needs of coastal communities directly from leaders of those communities helps me better align my scientific research to serve their interests.”
