Adaptation Bangladesh: Sea Level Rise

  • Byrd Theatre 2908 West Cary Street Richmond, VA, 23221 United States (map)

With the persistence of climate change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. At a time when doomsday narratives dominate the current climate conversation, adaptation plays an increasingly vital role for both its practical application and as a hopeful reminder of our resilience as a species. This series presents, for the first time ever, a collection of remarkable real-life examples of how people are adapting and innovating in the face of environmental change.  Adaptation: Bangladesh is the first episode, which looks at how farmers are coping with sea level rise by building organic floating gardens and other buoyant infrastructure. Ultimately, these adaptive techniques are a testament to how we survive – and thrive – on a changing planet earth. 


SCREENING OF ADAPTATION AND TIDEWATER FOLLOWED BY DISCUSSION: Alizé Carrere, scientist, National Geographic Young Explorer and director of Adaption - Anne Phillips, Tidewater personality - Admiral ret., and Kevin Slates personality in Tidewater.
