On May 1-3, 2012, the International Ocean Institute-USA, the University of South Florida, and the City of St. Petersburg hosted the Coastal Cities Summit II, which featured 60+ speakers from leading organizations and agencies in Barbados, Canada, Germany, Guatemala, Mexico, The Netherlands, Spain, Sri Lanka and United States.
Today you can watch them online. Check out the informative tracks to learn about new research, innovative programs, policies and best practices that address emerging challenges facing coastal cities.
- Rethinking Tourism: Sustaining Economic Development and the Environment
- Insurance, Regulations and Climate Change
- Effective Transit Planning: Smart Growth, Stakeholders and Vulnerability Assessments

The recordings were made possible by a grant from the Royal Kingdom of the Netherlands. From extreme weather to the economy, NGOs, government, industry and universities must share knowledge and collaborate more effectively address growth, transportation issues, adapt to an increasingly changing climate and manage or restore the coasts, beaches, bays that support coastal tourism and economic growth.
In each track, you will see a list of topics and can link to an entire album of presentations, or, to one speaker. Individual presentations are about 30 minutes. Panels run 45 to 90 minutes. We hosted them on Vimeo Pro so you can watch them without annoying breaks. Just grab a cup of coffee, a note pad and absorb the amazing insights. IOI-USA Executive Director CJ Reynolds
