A full-length recording and a series of short outtakes from the 16th Annual Future of the Ocean Symposium can now be viewed on the event website. The Urban Coast Institute convened a panel of leading voices in marine science and policy on April 13 for a conversation on where the nation is succeeding and falling short in its efforts to catalyze innovation and action to address climate change’s impacts to our oceans, and how oceans can help to mitigate those impacts.
The symposium was held at Monmouth University’s Great Hall Auditorium and moderated by Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist and PBS host Jack Ford. Panelists included:
- Richard Spinrad, Ph.D., National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) administrator
- Margaret Leinen, Ph.D., Scripps Institution of Oceanography director
- Charlotte Hudson, Lenfest Ocean Program director
- Richard Murray, Ph.D., Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution deputy director and vice president for science and engineering
- Tashiana Osborne, Ph.D., climate change advisor, U.S. Agency for International Development via an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science & Technology Policy Fellowship
