The Spring Series will close with an Ocean Solutions Panel on April 23, 2021 02:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
OCEAN VISIONS TALKS
Sharing and inspiring ideas for ocean solutions
Ocean Visions is launching a new series of Ocean Talks that aims at bringing inspiring ocean solutions ideas and efforts to the attention of the Ocean Visions community and beyond.
• 20-30 minutes invited TED-style talk on ocean solutions idea or effort
• 30-minute breakout group discussion led by students with jamboards
• 10-minute reports from breakout groups
At the end of each breakout group, the leads will post a short 200-300 words blog entry to summarize the conversation from the breakout groups.
Both talks and breakout groups are in a virtual format and open to any registered attendee. Registration is free but required. We also invite the community to suggest speakers and topics.
