A Special Initiative Across BCPS Highlights the Impact of Sea-Level Rise and Climate Change

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS), through its Applied Learning Department, is partnering with Rising Waters to showcase unique art installations at schools throughout the District.

Rising Waters is a conceptual art project that raises awareness about the impact of climate change to local communities by highlighting future flood levels resulting from sea-level rise and storm conditions. The colorful artwork represents the potential future impact of climate change over time by highlighting water at ankle, knee, hip or eye level.

In addition, students are placing hand-made fish flags on campuses, describing the steps they’re taking to help mitigate the impact of climate change.

The art installations and placement of fish flags take place the week of November 1 – 5, 2021, which coincides with the King Tide and the United Nations climate change summit (COP26). The initiative also supports the ongoing efforts of the District’s Youth Climate Summit to engage students in the issue of sea-level rise and the effects of climate change.
