Shorelines 2001 and 2002

Caring for Canada’s Shorelines - A Call for Involvement

Updated October 27, 2021

Working together as individuals, scientists, conservation, stewardship and community groups, government agencies, artists, and educators to care for Canada’s freshwater and marine shorelines.

You are invited to join The Living by Water Project in developing Shorelines 2001 and Shorelines 2002. Shorelines 2001 is a series of community-based forums and workshops, that will take place across Canada. Community groups will come together to share and to learn how to protect and manage their shorelines. Shorelines 2002 is a national forum that will encompass discussions and issues raised in the regional forums. Shorelines 2002 will take place in Vancouver, BC in the spring of 2002. A Shoreline Festival, to be held in conjunction with conference, is also being developed.

The purpose of Shorelines 2001 and Shorelines 2002 is to:

  • Provide tools and techniques to help community-based groups protect shorelines.
  • Provide opportunities for extensive networking by bringing together a wide range of participants concerned with the sustainability of freshwater, estuarine and marine shorelines and the health of populations who live, work or recreate in shoreline environments.
  • Exchange and explore innovative ideas and ways, such as Conservation Marketing, to focus efforts to protect, conserve, enhance, and restore shorelines.
  • Provide inspiration, empowerment, tools and support to community-based stewardship and conservation groups.
  • Recognize and reward, as part of the United Nations International Year of the Volunteer, the valuable role of the volunteer in caring for Canada’s shorelines and in assisting scientists in inventory and monitoring work.
  • Continue with the development of a "Sustainable Shorelines Kit" and a "Forum/Conference In–A-Box kit".
