The Aquarium will host a two-day forum called Sato-umi in the Anthropocene. This is the second of two forums co-sponsored by the American Honda Motor Company. Day one will be open to the public.
Sato-umi is a Japanese term that encompasses the relationship between coastal and marine areas and humans and how humans manage these areas for sustainability. Forum speakers will discuss the theory and application of sato-umi in the Anthropocene, the current geological era denoted by the dominating global influence of humans and our activities on the planet.
In the evening after day one presentations are made, a panel will explore how sato-umi might be applied in Southern California. This panel discussion will be offered as part of the Aquarium’s Guest Speaker Series.
