11/18/19: St. Augustine's Chief Resiliency Officer; Longest Table; Yoga; Cole Pepper

Nov 18, 2019

Historic flooding in the Italian city of Venice is a reminder that the world’s coastal cities are incredibly vulnerable to flooding and sea level rise.

Closer to home, another coastal city that depends on tourism is getting proactive about planning for the future. St. Augustine has been looking at ways to become more resilient, and recently created a new position dedicated to the task. Mike Cullum, St. Augustine’s new Chief Resiliency Officer, joined us with more.
