Exploring Off-Shore Wind Opportunities for Cape Ann

Massachusetts is moving forward in a significant way with Offshore Wind development plans as a means to reach Net-Zero. It is up to us to protect the things we need and love: marine life, sustainable fishing, and economic benefits.

Come to hear about the proposed plans for Salem as a port supporting the offshore wind (OSW) industry, and what the future of offshore wind development will look like. Let’s hear about: What role could other ports play? What jobs will be created? How can we do this and protect wildlife and the fishing industry? How to participate in the OSW conversation?

Join our Webinar, Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 7-8:30 pm, Presented by Cape Ann Climate Coalition's Community Building & Education Group
