The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

The Global Resilience Summit

Florida Earth Foundation will host The Global Resilience Summit at the world-famous Breakers Hotel and Resort in Palm Beach beginning Tuesday, December 11 through Thursday, December 13, 2018. The Summit will bring together a wide variety of stakeholders, especially in the private and academic sectors, to share ways in which collaboration and partnership can be fostered around resilience themes. Global challenges in resilience are mounting at an alarming rate and no one entity or organization has the ability to make much of a dent in solutions...however, together we might. Using case studies of resilience in coastal communities, opportunities to come away from the Summit with the beginnings of significant impacts based on working together, is the anticipated outcome of this game changing event. As this is primarily an invitation driven event, an atmosphere of camaraderie and partnership will allow C-level executives to be at ease with their colleagues and fellow participants.

When: 11-13 December
Where: The Breakers; Palm Beach, Florida, USA
