Upcoming Event(s)
Summer, 2009

The SCCCI intends to sponsor a series of public events designed to elevate discussion of global warming and sea-level rise.

By demonstrating public interest, we hope to convenience Space Coast elected officials to instruct their staff to (a) assess the potential effects on the built and natural environments within their constituency and then (b) follow up by authorizing specific actions as recommended by these assessments.

The next event will take place during the summer of 2009. Please monitor this site for more information.

Monday, February 9, 2009
Brevard Community College — Melbourne Campus
Building 4; Lecture Auditorium
7 to 9 pm; Cost is FREE

The East-Central Florida Climate Change Task Force has organized a Climate Change Forum that will be held on Monday, February 9, 2009 between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 pm. Our long-term goal is to elevate discussion of climate change to a level which will encourage action by elected officials, city managers, and residents of the Space Coast.

This Forum is the first of many events designed to present factual information regarding the issue of global climate change. The content and non-technical terminology have been specifically formatted for an audience consisting principally of the general public.

The evening will begin with the below presentations, followed by a round table discussion, during which time questions from the audience will be fielded by the speakers.

• Peter Harlem, M.S.

All attendees will receive an informational packet containing summaries of each speaker, as well as links to organizations whom are actively engaged in global climate change.
