From Plunder to Restoration: Re-Designing the Human-Ocean Relationship
Feedback form is now closed.
Seafood accounts for nearly 20% of global protein, but our vast appetite and technical capabilities are rapidly shrinking biodiversity while collapsing fish stocks and the economies, livelihoods and cultures that depend on ocean health. On the other hand, systemic opportunities to solve these problems are rising up and being implemented around the world. Learn from leading experts about what is being done to transform our large scale hit-and-run relationship with the ocean to a restorative, inclusive, bountiful (and delicious) one. Hosted by Teo Grossman, Senior Director of Programs & Research, Bioneers. With: Bren Smith, Executive Director, Green Wave, pioneer of "3D Ocean Farming;" Marah Hardt, Research Director, Future of Fish.
