2010 Ocean Literacy Summit
Thursday, Friday & Saturday November 11, 12 & 13, 2010
Thank you to those who joined us for the 2010 NEOSEC Ocean Literacy Summit, your participation made the event a great success! We hosted 135 people at the University of New Hampshire, with attendees representing institutions from North Carolina to Newfoundland. We anticipate posting notes from the keynote speech and panel discussion on our website in January – we’ll let you know when those are ready!
For those of you who did not have the opportunity to fill out the Ocean Literacy Summit 2010: Participant Survey, it is now online. We would very much appreciate you taking a few moments, if you have not done so already, to fill out the survey in order for us to better plan the next Summit.
Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing you at the 2012 NEOSEC Ocean Literacy Summit!
