Sustainable Shorelines Wins Climate Adaptation Contest

Climate CoLab Winner's Ribbon

Sustainable Shorelines to Present at MIT

The Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project was chosen as the Judges’ Choice Winner in the 2016 MIT Adaptation contest for the Climate CoLab! The MIT Climate CoLab harnesses the collective intelligence of thousands of people from all around the world to address global climate change. The Sustainable Shorelines Project was selected from among the nearly 500 proposals submitted to Climate CoLab since last February. Judges’ Choice and Popular Choice winners presented their work at Climate CoLab’s Crowds & Climate Conference on September 28, 2016. Sarah Lipuma, Student Conservation Association intern, represented the Sustainable Shorelines Project team during the MIT Campus & Region: Local Designs for the Future breakout session. Check out the Sustainable Shorelines video which was presented and the recording of the panel presentation here: MIT Campus & Region Local Designs for the Future.

About the Project

The Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project identifies nature-based shoreline techniques that help maintain and enhance important habitat for aquatic wildlife as well as improve resiliency to storm surge, flooding, and sea-level rise along the unique tidal estuary system of the Hudson River. The Project is led by the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve in partnership with the Hudson River Estuary Program, the Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies, Stevens Institute of Technology, and the Consensus Building Institute.
