River UPRising: Solutions Virtual Series
Tune in to chats with St. Johns Riverkeeper and expert guests as we discuss solutions to flooding and increasing water levels in the St. Johns.
After Hurricane Irma’s catastrophic flooding, many Florida residents wondered what actions were taken by their city to adapt to rising waters. St. Johns Riverkeeper forced a resiliency discussion by hosting a series of Town Hall Meetings in 2018 to bring the community to the table to learn about the issues and share their stories. Since these meetings, cities around the state have developed resiliency committees and have hired or are budgeting for City Resiliency Officers to champion the issues that stronger storms bring. Now is the time to start talking about how we as a community must adapt to a changing climate and see what other communities have come up with as successful solutions.
