11th National Conference on Science, Policy, and the Environment

National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) presented its 11th National Conference on Science, Policy and the Environment: Our Changing Oceans from January 19-21, 2011 in Washington, DC. Our Changing Oceans was held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

Our Changing Oceans provided a forum to address the crisis facing our oceans, new knowledge and innovative tools to address the challenge, and the policy and governance needed to restore and protect the oceans.

Our Changing Oceans brought together over 1,200 attendees, including scientists, professionals, policy makers, university faculty and students, and educated citizens from a wide range of disciplines. Participants shared their perspectives and developed a set of policy recommendations which will be distributed to the appropriate decision-makers. View the final recommendations here!

NCSE utilizes a multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral approach to convene involved scientists and decision-makers from various sectors of society. Our conferences include renowned speakers, topical symposia to explore issues more in depth, and breakout sessions to develop a set of recommendations on how to advance science and connect it to policy and decision-making.
