Sea-level rise and other climate change impacts pose growing problems for South Florida communities. Engaged residents are starting to rise to these challenges, with mitigation and adaptation efforts in their neighborhoods and cities. UM researchers are learning more about what new challenges a changing climate may bring. Neighbors, come talk with UM researchers to learn more about their work and what it means for us. Scientists, come brainstorm questions that your community wants answered. Open to all South Floridians who want to be part of applying science toward solutions; no prior knowledge required.
This event is open to everyone willing to talk about climate change. In South Florida, climate change impacts all of us, but not equally. Unfortunately, our vulnerable neighborhoods are more at risk. This event offers an opportunity for participants to learn why it’s so important to curb climate change impacts, not only to protect our beautiful state, but to safeguard ourselves and our most vulnerable communities.
Social Impact Movement is partnering with Debris Free Oceans for a EcoWalk afternoon at the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park sharing facts related to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal #14 Life Below Water in Miami while getting to know each other, our roles on the planet, networking, and volunteering. This EcoWalk Beach Cleanup will be lead by ocean scientist, captured by drones, and will have endless possibilities to share our humanity with the ocean.
The Dade County Bar Association Young Lawyers Section is joining Miami Waterkeeper for a beach cleanup with the generous support of Comcast Cares. We invite all South Florida locals to join in this connection experience which we will connect by beautifying Virginia Beach with friends, family, and colleagues. Let’s embrace our shared humanity by working together so we can keep our shared home waters swimmable, fishable, and drinkable.
