10 am panel | Awash video | Afloat
Policy makers, economists, lawyers and realtors will discuss the impacts on property values and tax base as sea levels rise. How will society confront increasing infrastructure costs (e.g., desalination plants, water pumps) as the tax base decreases?

Afloat: Participants will bring a print out of their property record (download here) and make paper boats and float them in the interior fountain.
