Coastal Zones Canada Conference, 15-19 June 2014

The call for Special Sessions for the Coastal Zone Canada 2014 Conference has been released!

The conference will be held from June 15-19 in the beautiful city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and will mark the 20th anniversary of the first CZC conference.

The conference theme is Our Coasts: Legacies and Futures. The theme recognizes our past - our legacies that have shaped the here and now - and the opportunities to influence, create, and resiliently adapt to our future. We are all accountable to step up, take action, and get involved.

Below are the sub-themes under which we are seeking proposals:
1. Coastal communities: Social and Human Dimensions of the Coast
2. Blue Economy: Working Waterfronts, Coastal Infrastructure and Resource Management
3. Marine and Coastal Ecosystems: Understanding the Complexity of Biological and Physical Coastal Environments
4. Environmental Impacts: Climate Change, Human-Induced Challenges and Community Responses
5. Governance, Policy and Law-Making
6. A Focus on the Arctic: Ecological, Social, Economic and Political Change
7. Knowledge and Information: Data Use and Accessibility, Information Management
8. Security and Risk Management: Managing Uncertainty
9. Social Media and Outreach: Reaching and Educating the Public Domain.

The Program Committee challenges you to think about the conference theme, and to think creatively as you create your preliminary proposal.
