Each year, the Consortium for Ocean Leadership hosts a variety of outreach and advocacy events in Washington, D.C. These events serve as an opportunity to engage member institutions in policy, develop partnerships with legislators and other scientific organizations, and educate the public about the need for science-based ocean policy.

Ocean Leadership’s main events include the annual Public Policy Forum and Industry Forum, as well as many other individual receptions, congressional briefings, workshops, and meetings. While events are commonly hosted solely by the Consortium, we often collaborate with other well known ocean policy and science organizations, ocean industry, and government entities.
