Leaders are ready for a frank conversation about the consequences of sea level rise in Southeast Florida.
The Sea Level Adaptation Institute is a newly formed nonprofit organization established to empower citizens and community leaders to embrace the new environment created by sea level rise (SLR). Founding directors, John Englander and Ken Hirsch want to engage everyone in the conversation of how our communities will cope with the historic expectation of the sea rising an average of 54 inches this century.
Led by Boca Raton architect/facilitator Ken Hirsch, the first in a series of visioning workshops will allow interested citizens to explore this new horizon in a professional objective forum.
The workshop is designed to engage a wide range of citizens and stakeholders in categories such as Service Organizations, Community Leaders, Nonprofits, Professionals, Academia, Consultants, Elected Officials, General Public, Students, Corporations, Social Sciences, Economists, Environmentalists, Arts Community, Retail Services, Faith Community, Media, Built Environment, Banking, Insurance, Real Estate, Health Professionals, Service Sector, Leisure Industry, Judicial Field, Manufacturing and Small Business. One of the most valuable outcomes of the workshop will be building relationships with people that normally don’t interact with each other.
