1. Visit NJFloodMapper.org to see flood hazards and the impacts of sea level rise in your community.
2. If you haven’t already, fill out Clean Ocean Action’s sea level rise survey. COA will begin compiling the survey data on Friday, November 1. This week is your last chance to add your voice to COA’s survey!
The survey will help gauge public perception on what should be done to prevent sea level-related devastation and who is responsible for resiliency and responsible recovery. The survey will also help measure public understanding of sea level rise.
3. Check out COA’s plan for November Waves of Action: bringing sea level rise into the classroom:
For November’s Waves of Action theme, COA is bringing sea level rise and climate change into the classroom. Currently compiling resources for teachers to utilize, COA is working to create lesson plans based on scientific articles, videos, and websites to help educate our future leaders about the reality of climate change and sea level rise. Educators will be able to register online to receive targeted lesson plans and pledge to teach those lessons on November 13-15 as a part of Waves of Action. For more information, please visit www.ForTheShore.org.
4. Reserve your seat for Clean Ocean Action’s Waves of Action Conference and Awards Breakfast in December. The results of the sea level rise survey will be presented at the Conference on Saturday, December 7.
