Keeping History Above Water: Annapolis
October 29, 2017 - November 1, 2017
Keeping History Above Water: Annapolis is an international gathering hosted by the City of Annapolis in partnership with the Newport Restoration Foundation. Conference discussions will examine the increasing and varied risks posed by sea level rise to historic coastal communities, their built environments and traditional lifeways. Leaders in the fields of historic preservation, business, culture, tourism, economics, urban planning, environment, sustainability, design, engineering and public policy will participate in symposia, workshops, roundtables and tours that focus on practical solutions and community engagement.
Given Annapolis’ leadership on sea level rise planning with its Weather It Together:Protecting Our Historic Seaport initiative, Annapolis will take this opportunity to share its planning priorities for sea level rise adaptation with residents, cultural resource professionals, government leaders and other community resiliency practitioners.
A hotel block is reserved at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. More information coming soon!
