VIDEO | SmithGroup on the Blue Economy, Climate Change and Decarbonization in Chicago and Beyond

SmithGroup, blue economy, decarbonization, clean water

Growing support for the blue economy is leading waterfront communities and businesses to take action to protect and preserve their coastal shorelines and finite water resources. In Episode 19 of the compelling video series, Beneath the Surface, SmithGroup engineers Nancy Kohout and Mark Wagstaff speak to Rockwool Group's Jonno Turner about the vitality of Chicago’s riverfront and lakeshore and how our firm is working with the City of Chicago and Chicago Park District to fortify these waterways from rising waters, coastal erosion and other issues caused by climate change.

This video was made possible by Rockwool, the Rockwool Denmark SailGP Team and One Ocean Foundation – three global entities working in partnership to protect and clean oceans and waterways around the world.
