Our Ocean, One Future Leadership Summit
September 15-16, 2016
The Sustainable Oceans Alliance partnered with the U.S. Department of State and Georgetown University's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service to co-host the “Our Ocean, One Future: Leadership Summit” as a parallel event to the Our Ocean conference, with the support of the Georgetown Science, Technology & International Affairs Program and the Georgetown Global Futures Initiative. High-level ocean leaders joined a competitively-selected group of 150 university students to build leadership strategies to spur action on the threats to our ocean. The Summit aimed and succeeded in engaging the next generation of political leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists, and civil society to identify solutions and commit to actions to protect our ocean so it can continue to sustain us all into the future.
