2017 ANNAPOLIS

Annapolis, Maryland | OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 1

Keeping History Above Water: Annapolis was an international gathering of over 250 experts and practitioners from around the country hosted by the City of Annapolis with support from the Newport Restoration Foundation. Conference discussions examined the increasing and varied risks posed by sea level rise to historic coastal communities, their built environments and traditional ways of life.

Given the city’s leadership on sea level rise planning with its Weather It Together: Protecting Our Historic Seaport Initiative, Annapolis shared the city’s planning priorities for sea level rise adaptation with residents, cultural resource professionals, government leaders and other community resiliency practitioners. Leaders in the fields of historic preservation, business, culture, tourism, economics, urban planning, environment, sustainability, design, engineering and public policy participated in lectures, workshops, roundtables and tours that focus on practical solutions and community engagement.

Photos and slide decks from the conference will be made available over the coming weeks. Please be patient as we work to distill all of the wonderful activity that took place!

Educational credits (AIA and APA) are available to those who attended the conference.
