March 27: Planetary Stewardship - Ocean Exploration

Ocean health is intimately linked to climate heath yet much of the global focus on climate change has focused on land interventions (e.g. greener buildings, cleaner energy, electric vehicles). On a planet which is 70% ocean, we are just starting to learn the mysteries of the water that surrounds us.
Peter de Menocal, Director of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute said at the TEDx Planetary Stewardship event in November that today for most of us “oceans are a black box.” Come hear what we are learning about the changing nature of oceans, what mysteries remain, and why the health of the oceans is so vital for our future. Speakers will share actionable ideas being developed from some of the leading innovation centers and experts.
