Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance’s 2015 Waterfront Conference- Call for Presentation Proposals

Dear Friend of MWA:
Is your work advancing a better waterfront in New York City or northern New Jersey? Are you pioneering a concept that will turn our waterfront upside down? Do you have insights that would enlighten others with a stake in our waterfront? Are you developing new techniques or seeing new trends to protect, transform, and revitalize the harbor and waterfront?

In keeping with our alliance-based, big-tent mission, we are asking you to help determine the content of MWA’s 2015 Waterfront Conference: propose a presentation, session, or panel discussion to make the conference even better for all who care about our waterfront!

Please submit your proposal here. For questions, please email [email protected]with “Waterfront Conference” as the subject line.  The deadline for submissions isMonday, January 12, 2015

MWA’s Waterfront Conference – birthplace of ideas and strategies for improving the waterfront such as Vision 2020, the New York City Comprehensive Waterfront Plan – is the region’s largest and most important annual gathering of waterfront experts, scientists, civic leaders, government officials, and activists, with over 600 participants. This year’s conference, Shaping Your 21st Century Waterfront, will feature an open house forum to learn in depth about MWA’s Waterfront Edge Design Guidelines (WEDG) as a tool to promote access, resiliency, and better ecology at the water’s edge, in addition to more traditional-format sessions. The 2015 conference will also be an opportunity to step back and consider what real progress we are making in creating communities that are truly able to withstand climate change.

And please be sure to save the date: the 2015 Waterfront Conference will be on May 7 on the beautiful Hornblower Infinity, launching from Pier 40 on the Hudson River. More information, including sponsorship opportunities and how to purchase tickets, will be available early in the new year.


Yours truly,

NJ Meadowlands
