Tackling Sea Level Rise through Digital Technology: Lessons Learned from the Resilient Nantucket Model

September 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Innovate Newport

Newport Restoration Foundation and the City of Newport’s Historic Preservation Department are pleased to co-host a lecture given by Morris (Marty) Hylton III, Director of the Historic Preservation Program at the University of Florida and Preservation Institute Nantucket. Hylton will share his one-of-a-kind 3D visualization of sea level rise in Nantucket and discuss how this work has contributed to a larger town-wide initiative to address the impacts of climate change on the community’s historic resources. The presentation promises to be thought-provoking and shed light on how small coastal communities can begin planning for climate change.

The event is being offered free of charge. Space is limited, so please register by Tuesday, September 17 at noon.
