Florida Atlantic University’s Center for Environmental Studies is hosting the 2nd Annual Sea Level Rise Summit 2013: Resilience in the Face of Change.
As a follow up to our successful 2012 Sea Level Rise Summit, held at the Boca Raton Marriott, this year’s Summit is in partnership with the 2013 Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture’s Subtropical Cities Conference: Braving a New World: Design Interventions for Changing Climates.
The Sea Level Rise Summit 2013 will be held October 16th & 17th in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Arts and Entertainment District and within walking distance of the many exciting events set to take place. Focusing on the economy and built environment, this year’s Summit will address the issues that public and private sector professionals face in adapting to sea level rise and other climate change related impacts. Local, national and international experts will demonstrate best practices and state of the art research focusing on the needs of architects, planners, landscape architects and engineers as well as those in the insurance, reinsurance, finance and real estate industries.
