This year’s Ocean Climate Summit will provide a forum for resource managers, scientists, educators, and public relations specialists involved in climate change and ocean acidification efforts in the greater GFNMS region to:
- Recognize collaborative partnerships and successes in addressing climate change and ocean acidification impacts.
- Promote dialogue and share new information and tools across disciplines on climate change and ocean acidification.
- Discuss climate change and ocean acidification education and outreach efforts that inspire action within the community, and lead to new collaborations.
- Discuss local collaborations that provide resources for climate adaptation planning/ climate smart conservation.
- Build upon existing collaborations and forge new partnerships.
Deadline to register is February 13, 2013. Space is limited so please register soon! A poster session highlighting coastal climate change and ocean acidification projects will be offered during lunch. Please see “Poster Submission” for more details and to submit your poster.
