In this interactive program you will discuss the social, economic, and environmental impacts of sea level rise in small virtual groups.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
How should communities build resilience for dealing with sea level rise in the coming decades?
Nuisance flooding, or sunny day flooding, is increasing in the US. This is caused by sea level rise, which increases the risk to coastal communities with regular tidal flooding and higher storm surges during coastal storms.
In this facilitated, interactive program you will explore the social, economic and environmental impacts of sea level rise, work with others to recommend resilience strategies, and learn about how participating in community science can help inform scientists about which communities are at risk for flooding.
