SeaAhead and Peace Boat US are working together to host two Ocean Innovation 'Free Swims' (June 2 and 9) during UN World Oceans Week 2020. The theme this year is "Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean." We'll hear from sustainable seafood innovators and talk about efforts to decarbonize the shipping industry. And we'll of course leave time for the networking sessions that our Free Swims have become known for.
'Free Swims' are open forums that allow ocean innovators to connect, exchange strategies and resources, get support, and share challenges.
During UN World Oceans Week, we’ll celebrate our love for the ocean & those fighting to save it. Explore cutting-edge technologies, and learn how to participate in ocean research and activism - even while at home.
Organized by Overview Collective & Garage Stories in partnership with the Peace Boat US & Friends of UN World Oceans Day.
