All Day

Ocean Frontier Institute Conference 2022

Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel 1919 Upper Water St, Halifax

Climate is at the top of the international policy agenda and is creating massive risks and opportunities in the commercial sector. Understanding the changing ocean is critical to predicting the future of climate. The ocean stores hundreds of times the heat and 50 times more carbon than the atmosphere and takes up more carbon than all the rainforests combined. Some of the most pressing global issues at the frontier of the ocean-climate nexus are achieving net zero, developing sustainable food from the ocean, and protecting ocean biodiversity. Conference delegates from industry and policy will share their visions and challenges for sustainable development of these topics over the next decade. They will motivate the next frontier of ocean research by highlighting key questions to advance the field and outline their commitments to action to make an impact on solving some of the most pressing issues at the ocean-climate nexus. Ocean Frontier Institute researchers will join the dialog and present results from their studies that contribute directly to enabling the future of critical policy and industry decisions.
