Objectives of the Symposium

Too often, community leaders focus on the issues of today, instead of clearly visioning the future. As an aid to seeing the path to the future, the City of Jacksonville’s Environmental Protection Board (JEPB) and the University of North Florida Institute of Environmental Research and Education annually present the Environmental Symposium.  The symposium brings together residents, government agencies, utilities and innovators in a forum designed to foster an atmosphere of cooperation in environmental achievement. In addition to opening, lunch and closing general sessions, there are breakout sessions on topics of interest.

Background and Information

Each year the symposium presents a unique opportunity for members of the community to interact with the regulatory agencies responsible for developing and implementing environmental policy. Attendees have an opportunity to better understand environmental goals for our community. The symposium provides valuable opportunities for communication and helps to further the goal of protecting our limited natural resources and improving the quality of life in Northeast Florida.

(tentative agenda as of June 13, 2024)

Jacksonville is poised to make substantial progress towards becoming a more sustainable and resilient community. Numerous initiatives are underway to bolster these efforts and foster a revitalized commitment to environmental stewardship. The focus of this year's symposium will be on various solutions that advance the region in these aspects. Additionally, we will take a look at efforts to address equity, ensuring that all community members reap the benefits of these environmental endeavors.
