Ocean Frontiers

Date: 4:00pm EST February 19, 2014

Don Chapman from Uncas Consulting Services and Jon Andrechik from the National Ocean Council will screen and discuss the documentary Ocean Frontiers.

Off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, comes a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, now testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive. Ocean Frontiers II is an inspiring story of citizens working together for healthier economies and healthier seas across New England.

This film screening and discussion will be in Hynson Lounge. From 4-4:30 Jon and Don will give an overview to help contextualize the film Ocean Frontiers  (4:30-5:15), and then following the film there will be a discussion and Q&A.
