Local Blue Economy Initiative Goes Global
The Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce and the Cape Cod Blue Economy Foundation, Inc. recently showcased their Blue Economy project at an international convening of coastal restoration and management officials in Long Beach, CA.
Program Director Leslie-Ann McGee presented the project’s work and progress over the past three years at the 9th National Summit on Coastal and Estuarine Restoration & Management, a national conference hosted by Restore America’s Estuaries and the Coastal States Organization.
“The Blue Economy acknowledges that the environment is our economy,” said Wendy Northcross, Cape Cod Chamber CEO.
The summit brings together policy, science, strategy, business, and on-the-ground restoration and management professionals to address the challenges and opportunities for coastal and estuarine restoration and management.
