Climate change puts into question the future of coastal America, home to over 100 million people. Some Americans are relocating away from coastal areas increasingly at risk of sea-level rise, fires, more powerful storms, and other climate disasters, while others are rethinking what it means to stay. But what if we took this challenge as an opportunity to drastically reimagine life in the United States for the better—on the coasts and beyond?
Join the Future of Land and Housing Program at New America and Future Tense to discuss the mix of creative public policies and societal reimagining needed to ensure that coastal America has a future.
