The Waterfront Alliance’s annual Waterfront Conference – now in its 16th 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.   

The window is still open to prevent the most severe impacts of climate change and ensure we are prepared for its outcomes. Funding is available now more than it has been in decades and the opportunity to take implementation to the next level is here.

The 2023 Waterfront Conference takes a deep look at what we can accomplish, and the best practices and strategies for implementation. Themes include climate resilience and sustainability implementation; resilient infrastructure; the central role of ports and the maritime industry in the future of the region and for sustainability; the needs and challenges of the offshore wind sector; commitments to the most vulnerable and environmental justice communities; and ensuring best practices in planning, programs, and decision making.

Hundreds of civic and business leaders, planners, engineers, architects, designers, activists, professors, and students will participate. Please see waterfrontalliance.org/waterfront-conference for program and sponsorship information.
