Marine Planning Process (MPP) Workshop
MEOPAR will partner with Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment to host our second Canadian Marine Planning Process workshop at University of Victoria, Victoria, BC.

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.

When does registration open?
Registration will open in January and will be announced on MEOPAR’s website, email lists and Twitter.

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.
