Living on The Edge 2011

The 2011 Living on The Edge: Coastal Communities Conference, entitled "Creating a Blueprint for our Coast", focused on what uses should go where in the nearshore waters and how the tools of coastal and marine spatial planning can provide a rational basis for that decision-making.  Collaborating on the 2011 conference were Massachusetts Ocean Partnership, The Nature Conservancy, Maria Mitchell Association, UMASS Boston Nantucket Field Station, and Urban Harbors Institute.

A sneak preview of the movie Ocean Frontiers:  The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship (see the trailer), a groundbreaking film that takes a balanced, bi-partisan approach to the problems we face in managing our oceans was shown during the opening reception.
