Zoom webinar register here
This year commences the decade the United Nations has designated as the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030. The "Ocean Decade" will create a common framework to ensure that ocean science can support nations in sustainable development of their coastal and marine ecosystems and monitor ocean health to protect the largest component of earth's system that provides global climate and food security. Founded in 1903, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego has a long history of leadership in oceanography, earth, climate and atmospheric science. Scripps Oceanography would like to leverage its expertise to build actionable partnerships with interested industries to advance this sustainable development across all research priorities including innovative technology, risk and resilience to hazards, human health and the oceans, biodiversity and conservation, climate change impacts and adaptation, national security and polar science. In this webinar, Dr. Margaret Leinen, Director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and member of the planning committee of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, will discuss ways that industry can participate in the decade, from large scale operations to smaller scale localized efforts, and collaborate with academia.
