NYC Rising

The world’s climate is changing and sea levels are rising. For New York City, Superstorm Sandy in 2012 was a costly wake-up call. Now, more than ever before, the city needs a way to protect its future and make it more resilient after extreme weather events. NYC Rising takes a look at five different solutions New Yorkers are using to fortify their homes and businesses for the future. These solutions are helping people, communities, and institutions cope with a changing climate, now and in the future, and could be a model for the nation. #NYCRising. Watch all five episodes below.
