Please join us May 3rd-5th, 2016 to explore “Connected Futures from Alaska to Florida,” the 3rd Sea-Level Rise Summit hosted by the Florida Center for Environmental Studies at Florida Atlantic University. Arctic ice is melting fast, transforming coastlines and multiplying risks around the world.Since the United States assumed Chairmanship of the eight-nation Arctic Council for the period 2015-2017, the U.S. State Department has highlighted how ice melting in the Arctic affects people, infrastructure and ecosystems worldwide, multiplying risks around the world.
The meeting will convene leading researchers, decision-makers, and other interested stakeholders to discuss the state of sea-level rise science, and how public policy and private adaptation efforts can lessen the impacts everywhere.
