Annual Conference 2009: New York
Waterkeeper Alliance celebrated its 10th anniversary by holding our Annual Conference in New York—the birthplace of our movement. From June 24-28, some of the world’s leading environmental advocates gathered at SUNY Maritime Academy to discuss the most urgent crisis of our time—climate change and the impacts on the world’s water resources. The conference was hosted by Hudson Riverkeeper, Long Island Soundkeeper, and NY/NJ Baykeeeper, all three of whom are among our founding Waterkeeper organizations. Representatives from more Waterkeeper organizations attended the conference than any previous one, and included new Waterkeepers from Bangladesh, Nepal and Ecuador.
