This film aims to foster a conversation about climate change and the related impacts of sea level rise and erosion, and leverage that conversation into action.
Dorcester County, MD, is already experiencing the future that faces coastal areas worldwide. This low-lying county on the Eastern Shore is Maryland's 4th largest county by land area, but will drop to 14th largest by 2100 - or sooner - as waters rise and erosion worsens.
Historically millions of people have sought to live close to the Chesapeake shoreline, but few communities are doing adequate planning to meet the imminent challenges of restraint, retreat, and adaptation to living on the edges of a rising tide.
