Dr. Scott Bremer is the coordinator and project leader of the CALENDARS project. Dr. Bremer's current work focuses on climate adaptation governance, with a focus on how science and other knowledge systems are used to support adaptive decisions and actions in institutions. In CALENDARS, Dr. Bremer wants to uncover the often overlooked influence of cultures on seasonal patterns of thought and action.

PhD candidate Elisabeth Schøyen Jensen is the Bergen-based  PhD candidate of the CALENDARS project. Her background is in Sociology and Science and Technology Studies and she has previously worked at CICERO – Centre for International Climate Research.

Dr. Arjan Wardekker is an interdisciplinary environmental scientist (social science, plus natural & humanities) with 17 years of experience and a dual career in both academia and in the science-policy interface. His work focuses on ‘Urban & Community Resilience and Climate Adaptation under Uncertainty’, with applications in global cities, delta regions and the Arctic. Key topics include: framing & narratives, science-policy-society interfaces, visualisation & communication, governance under uncertainty & surprise.

Dr. Paul Schneider is the postdoctoral researcher of the CALENDARS project based on the Coromandel Peninsula. Dr. Schneider's research background is in climate change adaptation, coastal risk, and resilience governance. The social and physical setting of the Coromandel Peninsula, where Paul lives and works, has been a key aspect of his research for close to a decade.

PhD candidate Kerstie van Zandvoort is the Coromandel-based PhD candidate of the CALENDARS project. Her background in the natural sciences has been applied to two decades of working in practice as a consulting Landscape Architect & Environmental Planner. Being based on the Coromandel Peninsula for the last seven years, Kerstie has acquired detailed insights to understanding the local socio-ecological landscapes of which it is comprised, while becoming increasingly aware of the immediate and future challenges they face in the context of global climate change.
