The theme for the 2018 Coastal Zone Canada Conference is “Seeking Practical Solutions to Real Issues; Communities Adapting to a Changing World”.
Coastal areas are extremely dynamic environments, which require almost constant adaptation and resilience from coastal communities. The aim of the conference is to examine how these changes can be viewed as benefits and opportunities, rather than as threats. To accomplish this, the Conference will be organized around a series of general topics of interest for Integrated Coastal Zone Management, as well as the local geographic region.
Throughout the conference, three sub-themes will be explored, including:
- Change and Challenge – Realizing Opportunity
- Engagement and Collaboration – Examples from the Field
- Tools and Technologies – Practical Applications
