CES News
wetlands ecology & coastal resilience
 
If you're involved in research, education or community outreach on environmental topics, we hope our new monthly newsletter will be a conversation starter. Each month you'll find the latest from CES on wetlands ecology and/or coastal resilience.

In this issue read about next steps following our 3-day Sea-Level Rise Summit, including the document "Adaptation Pathways 1.0" fresh off the presses. We welcome your feedback. In addition you can  watch our new commercial  and learn about a job opportunity .
Let's connect at one of the upcoming events (see below) or  email me with your comments on the Adaptation Pathways document. In next month's issue:  King Tide .

Sincerely,

Retaining Top Talent
To recruit top students, a new 30-second commercial will air on television and in local movie theaters. FAU's  School of Architecture student Heather Akers explains how the program addresses today's sea-level rise challenges and prepares her for a career.
Sea-Level Rise Summit Next Steps
Comparing notes at the Arctic-Florida SLR Summit with colleagues from Alaska, Canada, the Netherlands and Great Britain shed light on topics we're addressing in Florida. 

Adaptation Pathways
The challenges to infrastructure, health and urban planning in the face of sea-le
vel rise resonated with all of us. W e compiled a document titled "Adaptation Pathways 1.0" as a guide to moving toward more resilient cities. In case you missed it, you can skim the Executive Summary or full document. 
UPCOMING EVENTS
Following up on interest from the private and public sectors, we continue to engage with the community. Recently, CES presented at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce Big Ideas Conference. Look for us at the upcoming Chamber Breakfast focused on fighting "Brain Drain" and the SE Florida Regional Climate Leadership Summit.
