Inspiring Action, Creating Resilience – National Summit to Address Coastal Restoration and Management


Inspiring Action, Creating Resilience – National Summit to Address Coastal Restoration and Management

This coming November 1-6, the highly anticipated 2014 National Summit on Coastal Restoration and Managementwill take place in Washington, DC.  The six-day Summit is a multidisciplinary event that provides a blend of policy, science, business, and new and best management practices. “This will be the largest national gathering of the coastal restoration and management community in more than ten years,” said Restore America’s Estuaries president, Jeff Benoit.


The conference theme, Inspiring Action, Creating Resilience highlights just how essential people and communities are in taking meaningful action in coastal restoration and management, and showcasing how sound science teamed with best practices create healthy and resilient coastal environments, which in turn create jobs and strong economies that support coastal communities.


Restore America’s Estuaries (RAE) and The Coastal Society (TCS) are collaborating to present the first-ever Summit that will bring together the coastal restoration and management communities for an integrated discussion to explore issues, solutions and lessons learned in their work.


“We hope that you will share in our excitement as we embark on this new collaboration to lead the first national effort to bridge the restoration and coastal management communities. The Summit provides an opportunity to address many of the issues we have in common in a more holistic way and offers a more cost-effective way to convene discussion,” added Lisa Schiavinato, president of The Coastal Society.


The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, RAE’s local alliance member, will play host to this biennial event, and by the nature of this Summit’s location, the Chesapeake Bay will play a prominent role throughout the program’s six day schedule.
