Seas are rising quickly and we must Act Now to protect our communities and ensure our environment is able to strategically adapt to changing shorelines.
This event covers both the science and the emotional experience of what it means “to lose a world in slow motion.” Elizabeth Rush, author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist book “Rising:Dispatches from the New American Shore” reports from affected communities while Christina Toms and Bob Battalio contribute their expertise in nature-based adaptation strategies that build capacity for communities to become more resilient.
We can’t stop the sea from rising but we can take action to protect our communities and adapt to changing conditions.
Register now to learn what you can do to make a difference.
