Natural Capital Symposium

Blue Prosperity and Resilience in Small Island States session

March 18, 2020 - 8:30 am to 10:00 am
Munger Conference Center, Paul Brest East

This session will feature short presentations followed by a fun, interactive game show (yes, you read that right).  Each speaker will answer three critical questions about their work in small island states: 1) What do you do, or what does your organization do to improve the lives, or wellbeing, or natural resources of coastal and island communities that are closely connected to the ocean?, 2) What is most essential to enhancing the likelihood of your success?, And 3) What do you find is most often the biggest obstacle? After short presentations by the speakers, we will play “The Newlywed Game” with Peter Kareiva as host--pairing our speakers and learning how well they know and understand each other’s efforts to create “blue prosperity” in island communities.
