CERF 2019 Conference Committees

The CERF 2019 Conference wouldn't be possible without the help of the following committees. Thank you to all of those who have participated in planning our favorite event of 2019.

Meet the Committees
 

Our Conference Theme: "Responsive | Relevant | Ready"

The CERF 2019 team is excited to have the next conference underway. Our all-star conference team of 46 members is inclusive by design, to promote a conference that fully engages diverse science, management, and educational perspectives.

During the next year, we will build a conference framed around the theme: "Responsive | Relevant | Ready." This deceivingly simply theme speaks to the strengths and interests across CERF membership. We endeavor to connect science and society in the collective goals of preserving coastal and estuarine habitats, resources, and heritage. Through the conference, we will discuss the nature of research agendas that are directed at finding and solving problems, and how to engage stakeholders in that process.

Cultural Heritage & Coastal Humanities

The Cultural Heritage & Coastal Humanities theme explores cultural values and stewardship roles of coastal communities. It will highlight the unique position of people who depend on coastal resources, and live and work in areas of high risk. Our communities can be helped with science-based solutions and management options that can respond to emerging and existing challenges, build resiliency, and is relevant to lives and livelihoods.
