Elisabeth Mann Borgese Ocean Lecture

The Elisabeth Mann Borgese Ocean Lecture Series commemorates and celebrates the life and work of Elisabeth Mann Borgese, founder of the International Ocean Institute. Launched in 2005 to mark the 25th anniversary of the IOI Training Programme in Halifax, it aims to encourage the debate on oceans issues which was so dear to Elisabeth, by inviting internationally renowned speakers to discuss important and timely ocean-related topics. Through this lecture series, we hope to generate awareness among stakeholders, academics, students and the general public about important ocean issues.

The 13th annual ELISABETH MANN BORGESE OCEAN LECTURE is scheduled for 7.00 p.m. on Thursday 8th June 2017 (World Oceans Day). A multimedia evening on Marine Protected Areas - For Whom? will feature whale songs, live streaming and updates from the first UN Oceans Conference in New York, and a panel discussion on a wide range of implications. Reception to follow. All welcome.

This event is *FREE*. Everyone is encouraged to attend!
