Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the future of our communities. Across the U.S. and the world, our changing climate is amplifying damage to personal property, destroying infrastructure, disrupting communities’ social fabric and interrupting economic activity. In South Florida, the sea level is predicted to rise between 2 to 3 feet by the year 2060.

The Miami Beach Rising Above: Our Story of Resilience panel discussion will focus on how Miami Beach has responded to the threat of sea level rise by investing in upgrades to our public infrastructure and adopting policies to build resiliency into our zoning and building regulations.

“The actions we take now will shape our future – we choose to act!”
