Description

Collaboratory: University/Government/Industry Collaborations on Flooding Adaptation

This course will be approved for 1.5 GBCI and AIA CEUs

Come at 11:30 am for networking!

Skip Stiles from Wetlands Watch will present on the Collaborative Laboratory on Sea Level Rise and Flooding Adaptation - "Collaboratory" a program to bring university programs with a community-based learning component (senior design/practicum/capstone studio, etc.) into the tidal localities in Virginia to work on practical approaches to adapting to increased flooding from rain and tides. The effort is a partnership between Virginia Sea Grant, the U.S. Green Building Council, and Wetlands Watch (a Norfolk-based environmental organization) and has been running for three years. The goal is to help localities find solutions while students gain real-world expertise in the growing area of practice around climate change/sea level rise. Past projects have generated many millions of dollars in implementation funding and participating students are gaining employment.

This event is co-presented with Resilient Virginia as part of a Virginia resiliency education series looking at how buildings and communities support statewide resiliency goals.

Fee: $20 for members and $35 for nonmembers.

Lunch will be served.
