The NWWN is a community of practice, that is, a forum for people who share an interest in working waterfronts and are engaged in supporting the continued economic, cultural and recreational contributions they provide for communities, regions, and the nation. As a community of practice, the NWWN considers all participants as members with opportunities to interact, share experiences, and advance knowledge, thereby increasing general awareness and enabling more informed decision making on all matters that impact the future of working waterfronts.
