RISE: An Award-Winning Media Project
Climate change is changing human lives.
Rising sea levels bring high tides and high waves to our shores. Extreme weather events cause our rivers to flood. It is no longer possible to halt all the impacts of climate change.
Now we must adapt to the changes that are inevitable.
RISE looks to the San Francisco Bay Area for answers. These are the stories of men and women living along the water – a fisherman, a farmer, a developer and others. See the Bay from various perspectives. A kayaker brings us eye level to levees at the water’s edge. An urban planner considers how filling in wetlands has increased the flood risk. An architect suggests a plan that may keep the waters in check. Their stories can provide a model for dialogue for people everywhere in the face of this growing global crisis.
Please note – Professional titles of some experts have changed:
Healy Hamilton, Senior Research Fellow at Marine Conservation Institute.
William Travis, Senior Policy Advisor at One Bay Area.
RISE has been honored with two awards.
