About the Chesapeake Project
There is a distinct need for a Sea Level Rise institution for the Chesapeake Bay, yet there isn't one. Other Chesapeake Bay non-profits talk about Sea Level Rise, but none propose solutions. None make it a primary concern.
None are positioned to be a grassroots effort advocating for change or to be a non-partial convergence of knowledge. Each has its own agenda, we do not. Our only agenda, our mission, is to be a neutral convergence of knowledge — to promote every idea and person equally — to make every voice heard, every party equal.
We seek to educate those at risk of the tools at their disposal to come to their own conclusions, not to tell them what is right or wrong.
We seek to promote any project that tackles Sea Level Rise as it relates to the Chesapeake Bay, to give those projects a platform to be heard.

About the Chesapeake Project
What makes the Chesapeake Project unique is the grassroots effort we are actively forming. There are an uncountable number of nonprofit organizations dedicated to the Chesapeake Bay, while a vast majority of these are focused on the environment, yet not a single one is focused solely on Sea Level Rise. Many might mention it, but it is never presented as their primary concern. Yet the challenges and immensity of sea level rise clearly deserves to be one.
This is why there is a distinct need for a sea level rise institution for the Chesapeake Bay and not one of the other organizations can fill this void. Each one has its own distinct goal within the Chesapeake. Some fight purely for the environment, others our cities. When it comes to sea level rise, no one voice should louder than another. We need every voice at the table, but we first need to make that table.
This is the role the Chesapeake Project seeks to fill. We seek to be a neutral convergence point of science and economies, the natural and built environments, and all other competing factors. We seek to educate those at risk of the tools at their disposal, not to tell them what is right or wrong. We seek to promote every project that tackles Sea Level Rise as it relates to the Chesapeake Bay.
The conversation about Sea Level Rise needs to get loud. It needs to start getting people's attention so that nobody can claim they did not see it coming.
As an organization, we seek to unify all other organizations and work with them to promote possible solutions to sea level rise, while allowing them to still pursue their own unique agendas.
Seeking Founding Members
