UPDATED: March 13, 2020
Given the rapidly developing situation surrounding COVID-19’s spread worldwide, the Marine Planning Process Workshop has been postponed until spring 2021. MEOPAR will communicate specifics about date and location as soon as they are confirmed.

Marine Planning Process (MPP) Workshop
MEOPAR and Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment will host our second Canadian Marine Planning Process workshop at University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, April 28-30, 2020.

The MPP workshop will present participants with key issues in the marine planning process using national and West Coast case studies, interactive game-based activities, and an optional field trip on April 30th. Participants will learn an innovative approach to marine planning while building their network of coastal management professionals and early-career researchers in the Pacific region and across Canada.

Who should attend?
This workshop is designed for industry, public and not-for-profit professionals who make decisions regarding coastal and marine uses and resources, as well as those seeking a better understanding of marine planning decision-making. Students and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to attend.

Travel Funding for HQP
HQP and recent alumni are eligible to apply to MEOPAR for travel funding. Up to five HQP from the Pacific region and five from other areas of Canada may receive travel support. Please contact Laura Avery to express interest.

The Marine Planning curriculum was produced by Battelle Memorial Institute and was made possible through generous funding provided by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Marine Conservation Initiative. It is offered by the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University in partnership with MEOPAR. Online training is also available through Duke University.
