Next year, 2021, marks the start of the United Nations’ Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development; and 2030 is the target date set by IUCN, Mission Blue and hundreds of other organizations to protect 30% of the ocean as Marine Protected Areas. What will it take to get there?

Dr. Lowman, executive director of the TREE Foundation and founder of its Mission Green initiative, will join Dr. Sylvia Earle, founder of Mission Blue; Sean Russell founder and director of Youth Ocean Conservation Summit; and Enzo DeFerrari-Wilson, founder of Ocean Needs Everyone in this essential webinar for our times, moderated by Mission Blue director of communications Brett Loveman. Questions from the online audience will be taken and answered live. Register now.

The intergenerational roundtable participants will take a high-level look at the next decade and discuss opportunities and impediments to making meaningful strides in protecting the ocean, the land, and along with it, humanity. How can we balance our needs as a species with the needs of other life on the planet? How can we “make peace with nature”? What are the big, bold changes needed so we can go from a time of decline to a time of resurgent health throughout the ecosystems on the planet? How does climate change and our energy needs play into this? What about species extinction? Or resource extraction?

These questions, issues, and more will be tackled at the highest level to create a forward-looking, positive vision of how we, as a species, can improve our coexistence with the planet that keeps us alive. Register today to reserve your space.
