Film Screening and Q&A: Facing the Surge
Tues. March 7th 4:15 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Facing the Surge documents the tangible costs of sea level rise for the people of Norfolk, Virginia, and has lessons for cities all over the world. Norfolk is home to the largest naval base in the U.S. and to thousands of hard-working Americans struggling to adapt to the rising tides and an uncertain future. But Facing the Surge is not a film about loss and inaction. It tells the stories of citizens from across the United States as they step forward to raise awareness and push their government to solve climate change.
We will have a Q&A after the film screening with the filmmaker Diogo Freire and Professor Kenneth Strzepek, an expert in climate impacts and adaptation.
