Download the Preliminary Agenda.

The Summit is hosted and co-sponsored by:

  • Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program
  • Clean Virginia Waterways of Longwood University
  • Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center

FOCUS: Since the majority of marine debris (about 80%) comes from inland sources, the entire summit will focus on preventing consumer debris (bottles, food wrappers, cigarette butts, bags, balloons and the other common and harmful sources of litter & debris).

SUPPORTERS: Funding to support the Summit is from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office of Coastal Management and the Freeman Family Fund. To become a supporter, contact Clean Virginia Waterways at cleanva@longwood.edu or use this link to make a donation. All support is greatly appreciated, and goes right into fighting litter and marine debris.
