Communities across the country are increasingly preparing for the new age of weather that scientists say are worsened by human-caused climate change. As actions are globally undertaken to limit the scale of climate change, greater attention must be paid to redesigning communities, enhancing their ability both to adapt to conditions that are becoming a “new normal” and to recover from climate impacts in a resilient manner. Infusions of federal and state funding for our region offer chances for major change unlike any other in recent time. We have a once in a generation opportunity to ensure we prepare for the climate future, invest in vital infrastructure, and support the needs of the most vulnerable.

Climate-resilient infrastructure across all sectors; investment in our ports and the supply chain; and nature and the environment thriving through sustainable economic development can improve the quality of life for people everywhere.

Join the Waterfront Alliance and hundreds of other professionals and stakeholders throughout the region on May 24, 2022 to explore the planning, priorities, and policies needed at this moment to take advantage of unprecedented opportunities toward a better future.   

The Waterfront Alliance’s annual Waterfront Conference – now in its 15th year – is the region’s premier forum exploring the challenges of and solutions to climate change, sustaining a strong maritime industry and regional economy, equitable access at our waterfronts and to our shared waterways, and a healthier open-space environment.   

In keynote addresses and panel discussions, the 2022 Waterfront Conference — Meet the Moment: Building a Livable Future — will examine in-depth our mandate to solve complex challenges, innovate, overcome hurdles, and work together for the benefit of our shared future and shared harbor. Hundreds of civic and business leaders, planners, engineers, architects, designers, activists, professors, and students will participate. 

Topics in the program include:  

  • 21st Century Maritime Challenges and Opportunities 
  • Offshore Wind and the Shared Harbor 
  • Social Justice in Infrastructure Planning and Climate Action 
  • Public Access to the Water and Innovation in Design 
  • Federal Infrastructure Spending and Climate Adaptation
