Climate Adaptation Center events focus on Florida's climate challenges

Our events provide unique opportunities to bridge the gap between the latest scientific research and public sector understanding of Florida’s changing climate. Building on the success of the 2019 Climate Summit, the CAC will host a variety of in-person and virtual events going forward.

The cornerstone of our events program is the annual Florida Climate Conference, featuring a projection of the climate challenges Florida is likely to face in the future. CAC events are very popular — don’t miss the next one!

Upcoming Events

The Climate Adaptation Center is planning three major events for 2024! Following the successful 2024 Climate Champion Awards event, next on the list is our newest annual event, Hurricane Day, when we release our 2024 Hurricane Season Forecast.

Hurricane Day

This year, the Climate Adaptation Center will release our 2024 Hurricane Season Forecast at a new event – Hurricane Day! The 2024 Hurricane Day event is scheduled for Thursday, April 4th, in the Selby Auditorium of the University of South Florida, Sarasota-Manatee campus. The event will run from 8:30 am until 12:15 pm.

Hurricane Day features CAC CEO Bob Bunting and world-class hurricane experts who will present the 2024 Hurricane Season Forecast. Insurance and infrastructure experts will join in to discuss how we can adapt to the increasing storm impacts expected in the future by preparing for them in advance and shifting from reaction to prevention. More details will be forthcoming in the near future.

The CAC 2024 Hurricane Season Forecast will be informative, interesting and actionable. Mark your calendars!

Annual Florida Climate Conference

The theme of the 2024 CAC Florida Climate Conference will be Climate and Human Health. This year’s edition of this popular event will be held November 14-15, 2024, in the brand new conference facility at the University of South Florida, Sarasota-Manatee campus.
