Press release, May 20, 2020: Towns advance Expedition Blue participation
Read about Expedition Blue in the Barnstable Patriot’s article: Hyannis Harbor to be part of 2021 Blue Economy exhibition
The purpose of this project is to build awareness of the past, present and future of the Blue Economy, to connect the broad regional interests and offerings of Blue Economy sectors and to appeal to a wide audience such as educators, visitors, locals and areas of special interest.
This project will create a logical and linked geographic trail to highlight and educate on the diversity of the blue economy sectors including their history, prominence, operations, future opportunities, uniqueness, etc. The project will include hard installations of exhibits in each location of which at least the major part will contain the same information at each point with some level of customization depending on the highlighted topic or place.
Each site will be unique with a particular blue economy focus (either a sector and a work topic) which will tie it back to the Cape Cod Blue Economy Action Plan. Thanks to a generous grant from the Massachusetts Seaport Economic Council, development of the project is under way.
Right now we are inviting town governments throughout the Cape, Islands and Southern Plymouth County to participate in the site selection process. To find out more, please visit our Expedition Blue Partner Portal.
