THE FLORIDA COASTAL AND OCEAN CONFERENCE 2010
“An Ocean State of Mine”
FRIDAY JUNE 18, 2010
Hotel Duval, 415 North Monroe Street Tallahassee, FL 32301
The Florida Coastal and Ocean Coalition, a group of organizations working together to conserve, protect and restore Florida’s coastal and marine environment, is hosting The Florida Coastal and Ocean Conference – a one day conference on Friday June 18, 2010 in Tallahassee at the Hotel Duval.
The goal of the conference is to explore solutions to key issues facing Florida’s coasts and oceans, including: marine spatial planning, water quality, future of Florida’s coast, marine ecosystems and fisheries and ocean policy and governance.
This conference will bring together key policymakers, managers, scientists and interested members of the public (see Speaker List) to provide a well rounded discussion of the issues and solutions at a time of increasing national, state and local attention, especially given the current Gulf oil spill.
It has been well over a decade since a coastal and ocean conference such as this was held in Florida. The format of the conference (see Agenda) will be structured to provide expert presentations and facilitated group discussion and audience input conference to develop an action plan for Florida’s ocean and coast.
The Coalition invites you and your organization to join us June 18, 2010 in Tallahassee to be part of this process.
