NOAA Needs Advice for Next Generation

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration seeks suggestions from its partners and stakeholders to help shape its Next Generation Strategic Plan. This is a chance for those inside and outside of NOAA to contribute to the direction of the agency for the next 25 years.

“Think imaginatively and broadly. Unleash your passion, hopes, and ideas,” said Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. “NOAA must deal with a variety of challenges while continuing to be the nation’s most trusted source of environmental science.”

Participants can share their ideas on three questions:

  • What trends will shape our future?
  • What will be the biggest challenges or opportunities will we face?
  • What should NOAA strive to accomplish?

Comments will be accepted through the beginning of October via Those without computer access can submit written comments to:

NOAA Program, Planning and Integration
1315 East West Highway
Silver Spring, MD 20910

Comments should be postmarked by October 2.

The Next Generation Strategic Plan is expected to be completed by spring 2010.
