Meeting
Environmental Symposium : A Sea of Change

When:

Aug 26, 2008
7:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Details:

Too often, community leaders focus on the issues of today, instead of clearly visioning the future. There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not? ~ Robert F. Kennedy

As an aid to seeing the path to the future, the City of Jacksonville’s Environmental Protection Board (EPB) and the University of North Florida are proud to present the 2008 Jacksonville Environmental Symposium: A Sea of Change.

The symposium will bring together residents, government agencies, utilities and innovators in a forum designed to foster an atmosphere of cooperation in environmental achievement.

Background

This symposium presents a unique opportunity for members of the community to interact with the regulatory agencies responsible for developing and implementing environmental policy.

Residents will also have an opportunity to better understand environmental goals for our community. The symposium will provide valuable opportunities for communication and help to further the goal of protecting limited natural resources and improving the quality of life in Northeast Florida.

Who should attend and why?

The symposium will feature the City of Jacksonville’s Environmental Quality Division (EQD), the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD), the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), transportation innovators, energy experts and community interest groups. This symposium will benefit:
• Environmental professionals, managers, auditors and coordinators
