Sustainable Oceans 2017


Seeing Blue: Envisioning our Future Oceans

With 2017's theme, we challenged participants to think critically about the future health of our coastal and marine environments and communities. Everyone brings a different view on ocean issues and finding solutions to make our resources and communities sustainable. We explored our three “Seas” of:

  •      Collaboration -    innovative approaches to collective participation
  •      Communication - effective ocean education and literacy towards a sustainable future
  •      Creativity -   pioneering programs that take a creative approach for a brighter oceans vision

The keynote speakers for this year were Dr. Julia Baum and photojournalist Nick Hawkins!  Check out Julia Baum's lab website here and Nick's website here!
