The North Carolina Chapter of the US Green Building Council is holding its signature social event on Thursday, May 12 at Bluewater Waterfront Grill in Wrightsville Beach: Climate Change, Sea Level Rise, & Resilient Design. The buffet dinner, beginning at 6:00 pm, features a student expo, presentations, and a panel discussion. The goal is to explore ways a community of stakeholders can work together to adapt to a changing environment while reducing impact. Biologist/Oceanographer Dr. Lawrence Cahoon and Stephanie Kelly, the Education & Programs Chair of the Green Building Council, joined us in the studio to talk about the evening and the issues.
Topics for the three 20-minute presentations are Climate and Sea Level Rise (Dr. Cahoon); Resilient Design & the Coastal Dynamics Design Lab (Andrew Fox); and Adaptation & Climate Policy (Dr. Andy Keeler).
