The Dutch have long been masters at keeping the tide at bay. Now the man formerly tasked with protecting the Netherlands has set his sights on U.S. coastlines. With scientists suggesting that a 10-foot rise in sea level is inevitable, drastic measures will need to be taken to save our cities as we know them. Join us for a discussion on how working with the water instead of against it may prove to be the strongest asset in our fight for resiliency. This event is generously sponsored by the Koret Foundation.
