2012 Waterfront Conference

2012 Waterfront Conference













MWA Waterfront Conferences have played a proud leading role in fostering progressive new plans and initiatives for our harbor.

The 2012 Waterfront Conference was another great success, attracting over 650 participants over two days. 

The conference centered our collective work to continue cleaning our waters, providing better access, greening the port and waterfront industry, creating waterfront jobs, and preparing for the new challenge of sea level rise. These topics and many others were explored by leading activists, experts, and government officials.

Information about each of the panels, including video recordings and the speakers' powerpoints, can be found at the individual links below.
