As growth along our nation’s coastlines continues to increase, the threat from sea level rise, storm surges, flooding, and unsettled weather patterns are conspiring to make us think differently about how to protect, develop, and manage coastal communities. While the challenges are formidable, there is now a wonderful opportunity to craft a new approach to development and protection—one built on ecological abundance, social equity, and climate. In this session, you will learn about the development of Alys Beach, a new urbanist community located in northwest Florida, which demonstrates sustainability in all key aspects of the Town’s carefully crafted vision—architecture, building methods, infrastructure design, and landscape. You will also learn about efforts underway throughout the country and in Charleston, SC to protect coastal communities using a variety of best management practices, nature-based solutions, and socially just approaches to addressing climate change and the loss of biological diversity.
