Abstract:
A leading focus of ocean acidification outreach has involved issue identification- education the public and decision makers on the scale of the problem facing the ocean. The message of what can be done has been less well told. In this webinar, the speakers will share their motivation for and experiences with developing and education video on local actions and solution to address ocean acidification. Using a series of stories of citizen science-based monitoring, industry innovation, and the search for local mitigation solutions, they will share experiences of Oregonian's rolling up their sleeves to act locally against a global challenge. Surprises and lessons learned will also be related, particularly in the context of a fast moving ocean acidification and hypoxia policy landscape.
