Keeping History Above Water: St. Augustine will explore the impacts of sea level rise on historic coastal and river communities and cultural resources through the lens of time. With the theme of Envision 2050, emphasis is placed on policies, programs, and projects that address the situation in the short-term (defined as 30 years). Presenters will share research, strategies, and case studies of real-world applications that will physically, socially, and economically transform the world as we adapt the world to sea level rise over the next few decades. Presentation and workshop proposals are encouraged from professionals, policymakers, researchers, scholars, students, and others studying and addressing rising waters and its impact on historic places and cultural resources.

This fourth iteration of Keeping History Above Water is a partnership of Flagler College, University of Florida, and the City of St. Augustine in collaboration with the Newport Restoration Foundation. Learn more at: http://historyabovewater.org/2019-st-augustine/

Leaders in the fields of historic preservation, business, culture, tourism, economics, urban planning, environment, sustainability, design, engineering and public policy are encouraged to submit proposals for lectures and workshops that focus on applied research, practical solutions, and community engagement.
