2021 Stone Living Lab Conference

The Stone Living Lab and the Boston Harbor Ecosystem Network held their first research conference “Resilient Boston Harbor: Research for a Sustainable Future” virtually on Tuesday October 26, 2021. The conference brought together more than 125 participants to discuss ongoing research as well as research needs and opportunities. The conference was designed to advance projects that will inform coastal resilience decisions. Participants also had the option of joining a field trip to get a first-hand look at research in progress. Click below for more details including agenda, videos, and research posters.

Overview of Stone Living Lab Conference

As an innovation center for nature based solutions, the Lab plans to convene a conference each year allowing the Lab to formally discuss coastal research with other Boston Harbor and global researchers and interested stakeholders. It will also foster coordination and collaboration among other relevant research activities in Boston Harbor. In addition to discussions about the research, conveners will focus a special emphasis on place-based community science, education, and community participation. The conferences will involve the Lab’s Scientific Advisory Committee and will be coordinated with The Boston Harbor Islands Symposia intended to bring the science of Boston Harbor to park staff, volunteers, and the public.
