2017 ANNAPOLIS

Annapolis Maryland, Oct 29-Nov 1, 2017

Keeping History Above Water: Annapolis is an international gathering hosted by the City of Annapolis with support from the Newport Restoration Foundation. Conference discussions will examine 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 will take this opportunity to share 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 will participate in lectures, workshops, roundtables and tours that focus on practical solutions and community engagement.

Pre-register for more information. Conference registration opens in May 2017.
