Communities are searching for feasible and immediate actions to reduce their vulnerability to changes in the local environment -- but how can the sum of emerging technological and policy solutions make a difference at the global scale? By exploring community-level responses to worldwide challenges like ocean acidification, marine debris, and intensifying ocean use, this discussion will link the local and global scales to reveal how local strategies can add up to address global drivers of risk for coastal economies, culture, and ways of life.
