You are invited to participate in and contribute to "Coastal Zone Canada 
2010: Healthy Oceans - Strong Coastal Communities", being held in 
Charlottetown fron 25 to 29 July 2010. CZC 2010 comes at a critical time for 
our coastal ecosystems.  Global warming, sea level rise, ocean 
acidification, loss of biodiversity, resource depletion, man-made disasters 
and many other factors threaten our coastal waters and those who depend upon 
them for their livelihood. CZC 2010 will bring scientists, policy makers, 
students, fishers, and many others with vested interests in the health of 
our oceans to discuss, debate, present and collectively enhance our 
understanding of those threats and to determine how we can best mitigate and 
adapt to them.  Keynote speakers and panelists at the Conference include 
journalist and author Alanna Mitchell ("Sea Sick: The Global Ocean Crisis") 
and the Honourable David MacDonald.

CZC 2010 will generate a strong and collective call for action that will be 
informed by our discussions and by active social networking throughout the 
Conference.  Our 'call' will be a blueprint for action that will be 
delivered to all those with responsibilities for the sustainability and 
maintenance of our priceless coastal ecosystems.

Join us in PEI from July 25-29 and be a part of the solution.  Visit
