IMPORTANT INFORMATION – 18/03/2020
In response to the Federal Government’s recommendations to the current COVID-19 situation, the Organising Committee have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Coast to Coast National Conference.
Many of you will be disappointed, as are we. The conference organising committee had put together a wonderful conference program from your submitted abstracts and were finalising the itineraries for the field tours.
We are hopeful the conference will be re-scheduled for 2021 and will provide you with updates as soon as they become available.
We thank you for your understanding during this very difficult time.
2020 Conference Organising Committee
The 2020 Coast to Coast Conference will be held at the Pullman Cairns International, 27 – 30 July.
Welcome to the 15th Coast to Coast National Conference – the Australian Coastal Society’s biennial national coastal management conference.
You are part of a large and diverse community of organisations and individuals involved in Australia’s coastal zone, or perhaps the coast of another nation. This conference is an essential part of your calendar whether you work in government, research, natural resource management, a community organisation or NGO, if you provide consultant services or represent a coastal industry.
We have designed Coast to Coast 2020 to encourage deep dialogue, inspiring presentations, rich stories, informative excursions, fruitful workshops, opportunities to strengthen connections and build new ones, and time for great conversations.
We encourage you to put the dates in your diary and join our mailing list through our website. We also invite you and your organisation to consider what you might contribute to the conference, for example by:
- Registering yourself, and supporting other key staff to attend
- Presenting a spoken paper or a poster, or other display,
- Convening a workshop or discussion,
- Showcasing your organisation’s or business’s work with an exhibition booth,
- Chipping in to help support this important event as a Sponsor
We are all in this together. Please share the excitement and rising groundswell of interest and energy as we prepare to welcome you to Cairns in 2020
