International Marine Conservation Congress: Making Marine Science Matter

Symposium: Techniques and Strategies for Communicating Ecosystem-based Management
May 21, 2009
George Mason University, Fairfax, VA
Registration Deadline: May 21, 2009
Presentation at this event.

This two-session workshop will tackle how to effectively communicate the concepts and science underlying an ecosystem-based approach to ocean management to audiences such as the media, the stakeholder community, and the general public. Dr. Ellen Pikitch, a leader in ecosystem-based fisheries management, will be an expert panelist in the first session on May 21, 4:30-6:30 pm, in Enterprise Hall at George Mason University's Fairfax Campus.

The International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) is an interdisciplinary meeting that will engage natural and social scientists, managers, policy-makers, and the public. The goal of the IMCC is to put conservation science into practice through public and media outreach and the development of science-based deliverables -- such as policy briefs and blue ribbon position papers-- that will be used to drive policy change and implementation. It is sponsored by the Marine Section of the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) and was organized by a committee including Dr. Phaedra Doukakis, Research Scientist with the Institute for Ocean Conservation Science.
