SAVE THE DATE: OneCape, August 16 & 17, 2018

The 2018 OneCape Summit is scheduled for August 16 and 17 at the Wequassett Resort in Harwich.

Registration and further event details coming soon. 


Call for Presentations

August 16th and 17th, 2018. Consistent with years past, the Summit provides an opportunity for a region-wide conversation on the unique intersections of Cape Cod’s environment and economy. This year will focus on the importance of environmental, community, and economic resilience in the face of ongoing natural and social change.

Past years have focused significantly on Cape Cod’s coastal water quality, as the region worked to define a path forward through development of a regional water quality plan. Significant progress is being made locally.

The Commission is seeking proposals for presentations that address water quality planning and implementation in the region, including pilot projects, innovative and alternative technologies, financing, and policy solutions.


Presentations may be in one of two formats, a full-length presentation (25-minutes), or a lightning talk (10 minutes or less). Full-length presentations should promote best practices and share lessons learned across the Cape. Lightning talks may highlight accomplishments, ideas, and local, grassroots projects that may move the needle on Cape Cod’s water quality challenges.


Proposals are due June 8, 2018. Proposals should be no longer than 1 page in length, and should be sent to Erin Perry, Special Projects Manager, at eperry@capecodcommission.org.

Include the following information in the proposal:

  • Presentation title
  • Presenter(s), including name, title, Town/organization, and email address
  • Proposed length of session
  • Abstract: give a brief overview of the proposed presentation, and what you intend for the audience to learn. Share any transferable lessons that can be used across Cape Cod and beyond.

Presentations will be evaluated based on:

  • How well the presentation addresses the conferences themes and current planning challenges
  • Quality of presentation proposal and intended lessons learned
  • Relevant background of presenters
  • Transferability of presentation lessons learned
