Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, Marine Biologist and Policy Expert
Amidst our climate crisis, the sixth mass extinction, and astronomical inequality, where does that leave ocean science and policy? Where should we focus our energies? How can we connect the dots? 
This talk will explore the practicalities of ocean conservation—from zoning, to seafood, cities, the Green New Deal, coastal ecosystems, sea level rise, and culture—plus the social justice context within which all this work proceeds.
