Inland Ocean Action Summit

The IOAS, organized by Blue Frontier and the Inland Ocean Coalition with support from Charlotte Vick of EarthX will draw ocean activists from inland areas of the United States to help raise the profile of marine conservation through organizational growth and development so that the ocean cause is no longer seen as simply a coastal cause by policymakers and others, but as a topic of national and global scope and significance.  

The IOAS will be the first opportunity for the Inland Ocean Coalition and other inland ocean advocates to come together to learn and network during a number of speakers, panels, and workshops.  This first day will be followed up with an evening event and opportunity for networking and the second day will be divided between a professional ‘Blue Beat’ media training and a national chapters meeting of the Inland Ocean Coalition.
