In 2013 HighWaterLine Miami successfully used art to engage greater Miami in lively conversations about the climate change impacts to Miami as well as inspired solutions to building a more resilient community.
Miami is the most climate vulnerable city in the United States primarily because:
The city was built at sea level.
Miami’s sole source of drinking water lies beneath the city in an aquifer, incredibly vulnerable to saltwater intrusion (when salt water seeps into fresh water). Close to 1/3 of Floridians rely on this aquifer for their drinking water.
