Strengthening the Great Blue Wall: The West Coast Response to Offshore Drilling
October 8, 2018, 9 am to 5:30 pm
Location: Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
Strengthening the Great Blue Wall is a collaboration across Washington, Oregon and California to bring together tribal, state and local voices and hear their responses to proposed oil and gas drilling off the West Coast. The conference will include the perspectives of institutions of the Executive and Legislative branches of government, the legal community, grassroots advocates, Native Americans, fishermen and others to foster dialogue and increase our understanding of the role of law, and an empowered civil society, in response to these renewed threats. We hope to provide participants with the opportunity to explore alternative strategies and recommendations, and to examine options for effective legal actions.
Strengthening the Great Blue Wall is free and open to campus and community. Space is limited.
