We are connected to the world through modern technology networks, but as human beings, we are connected to one another by an ancient network that powers quite literally the entire planet: the ocean. This vast ecosystem is currently at risk, and if we are to protect it, we first need to understand our connection to it. This panel explores the ways in which our consumption and economic activities impact the oceans, the unintended and strangely interconnected consequences of those patterns and activities, and what we can all do as people and employees to turn things around. Panelists (left to right): Ana Blanco Dr. Kyle S. Van Houtan Dr. Barbara Block David Helvarg Birgitte Rasine Moderated by Michiel Bakker. Get the book: https://goo.gl/ZW5k3U
