2024 LISCIF Annual Learning Exchange

PC: Argenis Apolinario

Thank you for attending the Long Island Sound Community Impact Fund’s first ever Annual Learning Exchange! It was so great to meet all of you in-person and have everyone in New York and Connecticut network together! We hope you found the breakout sessions informative and were able to take away a few strategies that you can apply to your project or organization. We would like to thank all the speakers from the breakout sessions and those supporting them, along with support from EPA, Long Island Sound Study, CTDEEP, NY & CT Sea Grant, Save the Sound, and CUNY Graduate Center’s Earth and Environmental Sciences for all their support and allowing us the space to gather.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this questionnaire and let us know how next year’s gathering can be improved.
