Cape May Forum fosters the transformative power of ideas and the arts in America’s first seaside resort. The Forum seeks inspiration through an educated and engaged exploration of socially-relevant issues, in concert with outstanding presenters and cultural partners. 

Modeled after the Chautauqua Institution, Cape May Forum offers a unique retreat where participants can grapple with the social, moral and political issues of our times. The 2010 Cape May Forum opened by asking: “Humor – Can It Save the World?”  Then in 2011 we posed the question: “Guess What’s Coming for Dinner? - The Politics of Food in the 21st  Century” and explored everything from the gourmet food movement in the developed world, to the politics of food scarcity in the developing world.  

Now in 2012 we launch a new season and look to the “Future of Energy” on June 2-3, 2012. How has energy consumption changed in the last century? How will it change in the next 100 years? From our dependence on imported fuels to the environmental concerns involving domestic production of nuclear, coal, and natural gas – sourcing energy is becoming a defining controversy of our times. It impacts our local community, drives economics at the national level, and influences international relations. How we act collectively to solve our problems and find innovative new directions will determine the quality of life on our planet for coming generations.
