On April 1, 2022, Xavier Cortada delivered the Keynote Address for iLaw2022, The Florida Bar’s International Law conference, urging international lawyers to plan for a future with rising seas.

Before taking the stage, Cortada had conference attendees participate in his HELLO participatory art project. Each one of them found out their home’s elevation above sea level and wore it on their chest, sparking a buzz throughout the conference halls about Miami’s vulnerability to rising seas and the need for mitigating the climate crisis.
