EARTH WEEK 2021: ANCIENT WISDOM & THE OCEAN

Join Oceanic Global on 20 April 2021, to discuss the critical role of traditional, indigenous, and local knowledge in ocean conservation.

Join us this Earth Week on 20 April, for Ancient Wisdom and the Ocean—a virtual gathering, supported by Aspiration, exploring traditional, indigenous, and local knowledge from around the world, and the importance of blending it with modern science to create a holistic approach for protecting our blue planet.

The gathering will be hosted by actress and activist Nathalie Kelley and will include four discussion circles, led by global community leaders that use traditional knowledge across the themes: protecting marine areas, fisheries, climate resiliency, and oceanic biodiversity. Each circle will have participating scientists and will be facilitated by partners including Eco Resolution and Seeding Sovereignty. Participants are encouraged to join the discussions. Full line-up to be announced on 13 April.
