Florida Atlantic University’s Center for Environmental Studies will be hosting 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 (ACSA) 4th Biennial 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 City of Fort Lauderdale. On the evening of the 17th, a joint keynote speaker will officially open the Subtropical Cities and ACSA Conference which will continue through to October 19th.

Focusing on the economy and built environment, the Summit will address the issues professionals face in adapting to sea level rise (SLR) and other climate change related impacts.

Local, national and international experts will demonstrate best practices and state of the art research focused on the needs of the following industries:
  • The Built Environment: Architects, Planners, Landscape Architects and Engineers
  • The Economy: Insurance & Reinsurance, Finance & Real Estate

Panel Sessions will include:

  • State of the art climate and SLR forecasting and visualization techniques demonstrating how science is being translated into practical actionable tools
