Washington Coastal Marine Advisory Council’s (WCMAC) Coastal Economic Resilience Webinar Series

Nov. 2020 to Feb. 2021

The goal of these virtual webinars and workshop is to define a collective future vision for economic resilience on the Washington coast and develop recommendations that will better equip communities to address this complex problem and advance alternative paths. The objectives are as follows:

·         Generate and compile a list of projects in coastal communities that support the vision for economic resilience and require funding, indicating those in opportunity zones.

·         Identify potential opportunities for supporting projects (e.g., grant programs and other funding sources).

·         Inform and shape recommendations from WCMAC to Governor’s Office for building economic resilience on the Washington coast and elevating the conversation statewide.

The four webinar topics and dates will be:

·         Tourism, Nov. 12 from 10am – 12pm, WebEx registration listed above

·         Forest resources and industries, December 10, time TBD
