2018 Project WET USA Coordinator Conference and Training

Hyatt Place Mystic, Mystic CT

September 9 - 14, 2018

The Place: Mystic, CT

The Connecticut town of Mystic, named for its location on the Mystic River, was settled in 1654 as a shipbuilding seaport and safe harbor for tall ships to weather a storm. Today is it is a charming New England seaside town lined with mom-and-pop shops, restaurants, museums and art galleries. Mystic maintains an old seaport feel that attracts tourists to its rich culture and heritage. 
 
The Project WET Coordinator Conference and Training will be based at the Hyatt Place Mystic, located one mile from Mystic Seaport and close to the Mystic Aquarium and restaurants. 
 

The Theme: Resiliency in the Face of Change 

The planet is facing changing weather patterns, increasing water scarcity and frequent environmental threats. How can educators approach these topics and prepare youth to address present and future challenges? This year’s conference will focus on “Resiliency in the Face of Change’” as the theme of talks and trainings. It will feature field experiences to the Mystic Aquarium and Project Oceanology, where experts will speak about local and global environmental changes. Trainings and presentations will focus on how to improve educational programs and include resiliency in inquiry-based education. This includes:
 
  • Ocean Literacy and Resilience
  • Water and Food
  • Sustainability Topics
  • Extreme Weather
  • Green Design and Planning
  • Drought and Floods
  • Water Access and Human Needs
The connection between food and water is becoming an increasingly important subject. With the release of Project WET’s new KIDs booklet, “Water, Agriculture and Food”, the topic will also run through the conference.
