Event: TIDEWATER, Sea Level Rise & Security in the Southeast: Implications for the Military and Coastal Communities
Please join us for a discussion on the risks presented by sea level rise to national security in the Southeast and a conversation on how we can build resilience in North Carolina’s military and coastal communities.
The event will begin with a screening of Tidewater, an award-winning film from the American Resilience Project that focuses on sea level rise and the challenges it presents to the military and surrounding communities in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. The film screening will be followed by a panel of military, academic and government experts who will discuss current coastal conditions in North Carolina, the risks posed by sea level rise and opportunities for resilience for our military bases and coastal communities.
