Consortium for Ocean Leadership 2019 Public Policy Forum – U.S. Ocean Policy: Past, Present, and Future

March 13 @ 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Consortium for Ocean Leadership’s annual Public Policy Forum will explore the topic of  U.S. Ocean Policy: Past, Present, and Future. In 2004, the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy released An Ocean Blueprint for the 21st Century, which included 212 recommendations for a “coordinated and comprehensive national ocean policy.” In the ensuing 15 years, we’ve made scientific and technological advances that help us better understand the ocean, from sustainably managing its resources to forecasting the next major storm. However, despite the monumental advances we’ve made, our ocean and related prosperity continually face new and ongoing threats.

We stand in a unique position now to make great strides in improving ocean health, sustainability, and knowledge to achieve the unmet visions and recommendations from the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy. The event will feature expert panelists from across sectors and disciplines, as well as remarks from members of Congress, who will reflect on the 2004 report, assess the current state of ocean policy, and discuss the path forward.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided, with a Congressional reception to follow. Check out our website for more information on the forum, as well as the congressional reception being held that evening.
