About the Forum

The 2020 Forum is the third of a three-year series intended to help advance our collective knowledge about current spill prevention and response policies and practices in place in Washington State and B.C. It is hosted by the Washington State Department of Ecology and the B.C. Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, and is a non-voting and non-decision-making entity.

The goal of the 2020 Forum is to celebrate the final year; exchange information to enhance oil spill prevention, preparedness and response to minimize impact of oil spills to the Salish Sea (the shared waters of Washington and British Columbia), and identify next steps needed to keep momentum.

The 2020 Salish Sea Forum is a free, virtual event that is open to the public. As such, participants should be aware that anyone attending the event is able to capture and share screen shots, statements, audio, and/or images. By registering for the event, you are acknowledging and accepting this as a possibility.
