MPT is proud to present our second annual Bay Summit, focusing this year on the controversy surrounding the growing population within the Bay area and the impact that new development has on the health of the bay. Like last year, The Chesapeake Bay Summit 2017 will bring together a panel of experts to offer insights and solutions on these timely and important issues in a LIVE Maryland Public Television broadcast.
The provocative forum will be moderated again by Frank Sesno* in front of a live studio audience, The Bay Summit explores the complexities of one of the most serious problems facing Chesapeake Bay – a growing population and continued growth and development within the watershed. In this hour-long live program, Sesno and world-renowned experts on the Chesapeake discuss the vexing problems associated with growth and possible new ways to clean up the water and restore its fisheries.
The Bay Summit is a Maryland Public Television special that brings together experts and decision-makers to discuss in an open public forum some of the most pressing environmental issues of our time.
