Rising Above the Waters
Wednesday, June 29 2016
Today we'll talk with local engineers, architects and designers on the front line of initiatives to meet the challenges posed by sea level rise. We'll explore the Virginia Sea Grant Climate Adaptation and Resilience Program, and its work to enhance the sustainability of coastal communities, by attempting to find a balance between thriving tourism economies and eroding shorelines. Join us for an exploration of practical, real world design, engineering, and architectural applications meant to meet the imminent needs created by rising seas. We’ll also be chatting with WHRO’s own on-air personality, Sondra Woodward, who has seen the effects of sea level rise first-hand as her home is currently being lifted.
