It is common knowledge that our oceans are in extreme danger but most of the public is still not spurred to action. The current communication strategy of ocean conservation needs a change. Are there other strategies to galvanize our global community to action? This panel will discuss how new forms of engagement with the public could provide a fresh new take on the ocean conservation and spark action. Panelists will engage in an extended Q+A to allow audience members engage in a problem solving/brainstorming session based on the presentations.
