Hosted annually by the Cape Cod Commission, OneCape is a region-wide forum focused on the Cape’s unique environment and economy. It brings together more than 300 local elected leaders, municipal staff and appointed board members, industry practitioners, community leaders, and activists to discuss shared issues, consider forward-looking solutions and hear from experts in their fields on a variety of regionally important topics. This year, OneCape will explore ongoing efforts to become a more resilient region.
Helping to kick off the first of the two-day summit, focusing on the environment, are Massachusetts Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides and CBS Boston Chief Meteorologist Eric Fisher. Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Mike Kennealy leads off the second day, which focuses on the economy.
