fiu-graham-centerFlorida International University‚Äôs Sea Level Solutions Center (SLSC) recently hosted an event with the Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Nature Conservancy, the Environmental Defense Fund, Defend Our Future and Voto Latino to discuss the challenges of climate change and sea level rise in our local communities. Featured speakers included Congressman Carlos Curbelo, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Rebeca Sosa. As “ground zero” for sea level rise, Miami and the surrounding region have not only been focused on how sea level rise will impact its communities, but more importantly, what can be done about it and what is being done to ensure a sustainable and prosperous Miami in the 22nd century. As a “Solutions Center” at FIU, the SLSC is committed to developing tangible and meaningful solutions to this global issue through interdisciplinary collaboration and science-based adaptation and mitigations strategies.
