The purpose of the Gulf of Maine 2050 International Symposium is to increase our collective understanding about how the Gulf of Maine is expected to change over the next 30 years and to promote regional resilience in the context of those changes. The Symposium seeks to:

  • Explore  how warming waters, sea level rise, ocean acidification, and socioeconomic trends will impact the Gulf of Maine over the next 30 years

  • Ignite multi-sector discourse and strategic efforts to determine how a changing Gulf of Maine will impact economic, environmental and community sectors

  • Build a shared vision for regional resilience

  • Identify steps needed achieve that vision

  • Activate new collaborations for action
