Policy Pub is a recurring series of brief, plain-language talks by faculty of the college on public policy issues that affect everyone. Dr. William Butler, associate professor of urban and regional planning at Florida State University, discusses how planners in Florida are responding to the long term and slowly emerging changes associated with accelerating sea level rise in the state most vulnerable to rising seas. By some measures, Florida is the most vulnerable region in the world. After the talk, the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in dialogue on the topic. Policy Pubs take place in a relaxed bar atmosphere. They are free and open to the general public. No experience or prior knowledge is required.
