Given the continued uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Maine Sustainability & Water Conference was moved to an all virtual format. The conference took place on March 31-April 1, 2021.
Given the situation with the COVID-19 virus, and following guidance from the University of Maine and the Maine Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the conference organizing committee cancelled the 2020 Maine Sustainability & Water Conference, which was scheduled for March 26.
About the Conference
The Maine Sustainability & Water Conference provides an annual forum where professionals, researchers, consultants, citizens, students, regulators, and planners gather to exchange information and present new findings on sustainability and water resource issues in Maine.
Launched in 1994 by UMaine’s Senator George J. Mitchell Center with a primary focus on the future of Maine’s water resources, the conference has grown to incorporate topics related to many of the sustainability challenges facing Maine, including issues related to climate change, energy futures, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, tourism, and municipal planning. The conference attracts a broad audience of close to 400 participants from across the state.
