Speaker Biography:

John Englander is an oceanographer, consultant and leading expert on sea level rise. His broad marine science background coupled with explorations to Greenland and Antarctica allow him to see the big picture of sea level rise and its societal impacts. He brings the diverse points of view of an industry scientist, entrepreneur and CEO.

For over 30 years, he has been a leader in both the private and non-profit sectors, serving as Chief Executive Officer for the International SeaKeepers and the Coutsteau Society. As founder of Englander and Associates, John works with businesses, government agencies and communities to understand the financial risks of increased flooding due to the compounding effects of rising seas, extreme tides, unprecedented rainfall and storm surge, advocating for “intelligent adaptation”. He believes that along with the tremendous risks in the coming decades there will also be enormous economic opportunities that will allow us to thrive if we begin to plan and adapt now.
