As our society continues to burn fossil fuels and heat the planet, humans are actively causing sea levels to rise, hurricanes to strengthen, and heat waves to intensify.

Help our community plan for the impacts of the climate crisis by joining The Underwater, Miami’s newest interactive art project by Xavier Cortada. Here’s how to participate:

I developed The Underwater to help my neighbors understand our vulnerability to rising seas and give them the tools to take action. Learning together and working together today, we can build a more equitable tomorrow.
