201402tri-stateFebruary 28, 2014 - The Florida Center for Environmental Studies (CES) at Florida Atlantic University with its partners, the CLEO Institute, the Good Government Initiative, UCS and WRI recently collaborated to host a workshop for 40 local elected officials in Miami-Dade County, FL. The workshop presented the impacts of sea-level rise and climate change science in an interactive format. The workshop goal was to increase local decision-makers’ understanding of impending sea level rise issues in their communities. The workshop provided a tool kit with key points to help them make informed decision, increase their support, and implement plans to address the impacts of climate change. CES is seeking funding to replicate this successful model in other Florida counties. For information please contact Nicole Hammer at This email address is being protected from spambots.
