The National Aquarium, Monterey Bay Aquarium and New England Aquarium will proudly present the Communicating Climate Change and the Oceans Summit 2012 on April 15 - 17. Supported by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) under award NA09SEC4690046 and coordinated by the National Aquarium, this is the second in a series of national summits that showcase the unique collaboration and model climate change communications outreach program currently being conducted by these three aquariums.
The three-day event will feature expert speakers who will share successful methodologies to communicate climate change issues that spark public interest. Attendees will also have opportunities to break out into smaller groups to benchmark program initiatives and participate in brainstorming workshops.
Summit participants will enjoy exploring “Charm City” and strolling along the waterfront of the scenic Inner Harbor in springtime. As aquariums and zoos play an essential leadership role in conservation, the summit is a wonderful opportunity to meet industry professionals and develop future partnerships to support those initiatives.
