OPEN Conversation – Mayoral Panel: Lessons Learned from the Front Lines (iCAR) Conference – by Duke Energy
Posted on in Future City
An Aresty Leadership Panel
In the wake of unprecedented hurricanes like Maria, Irma, Michael, and now Dorian, coastal cities must address the concepts of preparedness, resilience and adaptation. Who better to leverage lessons learned than city leaders who have dealt with the realities, first hand?
Mayors from hurricane impacted cities will serve on a panel during this year’s Initiative on Coastal Adaptation and Resilience (iCAR) Conference, sharing what worked, what didn’t and what needs to be done next, for all of us to weather the storm more effectively.
Critical decisions need to be made regarding our changing and vulnerable coast; so, join us for some perspectives from the eye of the storm as we host an OPEN Conversation about coastal flooding and sea level rise.
