SI34A:
Ocean Visions: Finding Ocean-Based Solutions to Society’s Greatest Global Challenges III Posters

Session ID#: 92947

Session Description:
Human impacts on the ocean have grown considerably in the last century. Due to the many consequences of climate change and pollution, our oceans and their valuable resources are now growing dangerously close to being past the point of recovery. We are transitioning, however, from primarily doom and gloom messages to a new age of ocean optimism — an age where ocean-based solutions for mitigating and adapting to society’s greatest global challenges are being developed and implemented. In this session, a diverse variety of individuals will come together to describe innovative approaches and analyses that will enable society to better address climate, energy, and food security while simultaneously maintaining biodiversity and a sustainable global environment. Topics will include: algae-based aquaculture for food and fuels, conservation of marine protected areas in a changing ocean, elimination of marine pollution, harnessing energy from the sea, human-assisted adaptation of marine ecosystems and living resources to ocean warming and acidification, ocean-based climate mitigation and COsequestration technologies, and ocean optimism. Additionally, we will discuss entrepreneurship as an option for furthering ocean sustainability and explore how the next generation of entrepreneurs from around the world are tackling the greatest threats to our oceans by leveraging innovative technologies and creative business models.
