Capitol Hill Ocean Week



Capitol Hill Ocean Week 2014

June 10-12, 2014

at Washington's Newseum


What began as a ‘day’ in June of 2001, a year later became a ‘week,’ and since then has evolved into an important and much anticipated ocean policy forum in Washington, D.C.

Held annually in conjunction with World Ocean Day on June 8th, the purpose of Capitol Hill Ocean Week, better known as CHOW, is to provide a neutral forum where a diverse spectrum of ocean science and management expertise, stakeholders and policy makers can come together to discuss, examine and exchange information about the key issues affecting the health of our oceans and marine resources.

Through thoughtful interaction, challenges and recommendations are identified and shared with the greater ocean community and public at-large.
