New DOSI-INDEEP Webinar Series Starts May 14th 2015– hosted by MESP:
Deep Sea Promises and Challenges
There is a lot happening in the deep sea: new science, new industrial activity, new proposals for management, and new challenges to tackle. We want to talk to people in the midst of it all. We want to know what’s happening.
Following on from the successful webinar series last year, Linwood Pendleton will once more host these intimate webinars that are as much interview as seminar. Guests will represent perspectives from an array of deep-ocean stakeholders: minerals, oil, fishing, conservation, and society. The series will include an all-encompassing Blue Economysegment that will feature Charles Goddard, Executive Director of The Economist’s World Ocean Summit, and Maria Damanaki, the current Global Managing Director for Oceans at The Nature Conservancy.
The first webinar in the series, Industrial Mining in the Deep Sea: Social and Environmental Considerations, will take place on May 14, 2015 at 5pm AWST, 7pm AESTand 11am CEST. It will feature Samantha Smith, Director of Blue Globe Solutions and former VP of Corporate Social Responsibility for Nautilus Minerals, and Charles Roche, the Executive Director of the Mineral Policy Institute.
