CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Earlier this evening presented Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason with the "ENvisionary Award" for his work to combat climate change and sea level rise in the city of Coral Gables.

Mayor Cason has been a committed advocate and strong leader for pragmatic climate action. An intimate award ceremony was held at the Cinepolis Theater in Coconut Grove.

"On behalf of republicEN, it's an honor to present the ENvisionary Award to Mayor Jim Cason for his dedication to address the real threat of sea level rise and climate change in Coral Gables," said republicEn's Florida state director Anthony Bustamante. "We hope to continue to work alongside Mayor Cason to help keep our coastlines safe."

Mayor Cason deserves recognition for Coral Gables' vulnerability assessment as well as the creation of its LiDar maps—both of critical importance to the City's future plans. Further, Mayor Cason's public outreach continues to raise awareness of climate change and sea-level-rise impacts – not just in South Florida but around the state and the country.
