North Carolina State University will host “A Coastal Conversation: North Carolina’s Rising Sea Problem” 7pm February 5th at the Hunt Library on Centennial Campus.  The event will feature the new documentary film, Shored Up, followed by a discussion with experts in coastal engineering and science communication.

Sea level rise and coastal management is a sensitive issue in North Carolina because it affects people’s lives and pocketbooks in so many ways.  This is a very complex issue which requires diplomacy and respect across a wide range of competing interests.  “A Coastal Conversation” is one way to help moderate this important discussion with a goal to help North Carolinians address the problem of an encroaching sea.

Speakers include:

Ben Kalina, Director/Producer of the film, Shored Up.

Cliff Ogden, Municipal Manager.  Nag’s Head, NC

Andy Binder, Director of the Collaborative for Science Communication. NC State

David Kroll, Adjunct Professor of Science Journalism.  NC State

Stanley Riggs, Author of The Battle for North Carolina’s Coast.

 

This inaugural event is co-sponsored by NC State’s Collaborative for Science Communication and the Climate Change & Society Professional Science Master’s program.  Additional co-sponsors include the South East Climate Science Center and the Poole School of Management’s Sustainability Initiative at NC State.
