Here-Now-Us "OWL" Virtual Reality SLR Project

2015

Here. Now. Us. was a project launched in 2015 by the County of Marin, California, Climate Access, and the company Owlized to engage community members of the county to better understand local climate impacts, and begin to formulate solutions. To help visualize local sea level rise, OWL viewfinders were installed along a popular coastal multi-use pathway in Mill Valley, Marin County. These viewfinders are modeled after the classic coin-operated binoculars found at scenic viewpoints, but upgraded with 3D visualizations of how these places can be affected by sea level rise.

Building Coast-Smart Communities

Building Coast-Smart Communities is a role play product developed by the state of Maryland and funded by NOAA. It was used by the state in a summit, attended by more than 170 mayors, county commissions, environmentalists, business leaders and Maryland state officials, to discuss the State's climate change adaptation options. The half day role play quickly introduces people to the challenges faced by coastal communities and the primary options for addressing them. As such, local government authorities, planning departments, chambers of commerce, civic groups and residents associations can conduct this role play in their communities.

Impact Investing for Coastal Conservation: Bridging the Gap

This paper provides a framework for conservation financing in coastal areas that could leverage private sector interests with conservation needs. A few examples of successfully implemented private investments in conservation initiatives are included.
