Empower - The Campaign for Northeastern University


Sustaining Coastal Cities Conference

Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 7:00am to 4:30pm

Northeastern University Curry Student Center Ballroom

A conference on the critical role and fragile state of marine ecosystems.


The relationship between cities and their nearby coastal
resources is at risk due to increases in temperature, sea
level rise, natural disasters, ocean acidity, biodiversity
loss and environmental pollutants. This conference will
officially launch the Urban Coastal Sustainability Initiative at
Northeastern University, a cutting-edge science and policy
center committed to generating research and developing
solutions toward the sustainability of city coastal regions.
The 2013 kick-off meeting will bring together international
experts who will focus on the general plight of marine
ecosystems and the state of marine fisheries.
