Summit 2014: Inspiring Action, Creating Resilience
Restore America’s Estuaries and The Coastal Society are proud to announce a new collaboration to present the first ever National Summit that will bring together the restoration and coastal management communities for an integrated discussion to explore issues, solutions and lessons learned.
Inspiring Action, Creating Resilience
7th National Summit on Coastal and Estuarine Restoration
24th Biennial Meeting of The Coastal Society
The integration of our communities is long overdue. The collaboration provides an opportunity to address many of the issues we have in common in a more holistic way and offers a more cost-effective way to convene discussion. Through this joint Summit the interdisciplinary group of presenters and audience will be able to expand networks, develop relationships, and leverage opportunities to find solutions for common problems. To this end, we strongly encourage colleagues to work together across disciplines when responding to the Call for Proposals, forthcoming in October.
We hope that you will share in our excitement as we embark on this new collaboration to lead the first national effort to bridge the restoration and coastal management communities.
We look forward to seeing you November 1-6, 2014 at the Gaylord National Convention Center just outside in Washington, DC!

Call For Proposals Now Available!
The Program Committee invites you to submit a proposal to present at the Summit. For the first time, the Summit Program will address all aspects of coastal and estuarine restoration and management, in all habitats, at all scales, and all regions, including the Great Lakes and international locales. These topics are crucial now as coastal communities pursue new, more robust strategies to effectively manage, protect and restore their resources. Coastal restoration and management go hand-in-hand by providing services and benefits via natural and built environments. They are pivotal for creating a pathway for sustainable job creation and economic growth, both of which are particularly critical at this time. The Program emphasizes lessons learned and best practices in every aspect of coastal and estuarine restoration and management. Read and download the full document in English here.
