THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING
2019 In Review

About the OneCape Summit

We are pleased to announce the seventh annual OneCape Summit will be held August 23-24, 2021.

With news of increasing COVID-19 cases and the Delta variant and keeping in mind the safety and health of attendees, speakers and our community, the 2021 OneCape Summit has been shifted to a fully virtual format. We look forward to gathering again in person when it’s safe to do so.

This year, OneCape will focus on the critical challenges of water quality, climate change, and housing. Over the course of two days, sessions will cover strategies to address marine and freshwater quality, work to mitigate and adapt to climate-related impacts in the region, local and regional strategies to support housing needs, and building resilience within our natural, built, and community systems in a post-COVID economy.

The OneCape Summit is a regional forum for collaboration, innovation, and excellence across major policy issues and areas. From work to advance regional water quality to tackling issues of coastal resiliency and infrastructure planning, we convene together as one Cape to address the most critical issues related to Cape Cod’s unique environment and economy.

We hope you will be able to join us this year to continue collaborating on solutions for our greatest regional challenges.
