Geography 2050: The Future of the World Ocean

geography 2050 conference

Maritime and geography experts came together virtually for Geography 2050: The Future of the World Ocean, a symposium hosted by the American Geographical Society. Secure Fisheries staff contributed five-minute lightning presentations during exciting sessions on Oceans as a Contested Environment and Exploring, Mapping, and Sensing the Ocean. Researcher Colleen Devlin presented the Fisheries Conflict Database, and Research Associate Paige Roberts presented Project Badweyn. Their work contributed to the increasingly important strategic dialog about ocean life, maritime networks, humanity's reliance on the services the ocean provides, and how changes in the ocean impact all life above and below water. The recorded presentations are available in the video vault on the conference website, and direct links to view content from Colleen Devlin and Paige Roberts are also available.
