Capitol Hill Ocean Week 2019

Dates: June 4, 2019 - June 6, 2019

Location: Washington, D.C.

What started as a small, daylong gathering in 2001 is now Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW), the nation’s premier annual conference examining current marine, coastal, and Great Lakes policy issues. Convened by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation every June, CHOW brings together national and global stakeholders to address pressing science, conservation, and management issues facing our ocean and Great Lakes.

This year’s conference takes place over two days and includes high-level plenaries from ocean visionaries and breakout sessions for deeper discussions. Conversations will focus on our changing ocean, restoration of our ocean and Great Lakes, and working together for sustainable waters.
