May 31, 2013 – The Guam Environmental Protection Agency (Guam EPA) announced today it will be hosting the 27th Pacific Islands Environment Conference (PIEC) from June 26 to June 28 at the Hyatt Regency Guam.

This year, the PIEC will feature several eminent guest speakers including the Secretary of the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources from the Republic of the Philippines and Professor Gil Masters of Stanford University.

The PIEC is also a great way to connect islands throughout the Pacific and spark discussion about environmental protection, methods and advancements .”
