For centuries, societies believed the oceans were large enough to accommodate everyone and that they could take all our waste without harm. This proved wrong. Population growth, economic development, and massive consumerism, compounded by impacts of climate change, have shown that the oceans have limits and that we have surpassed them. Dr. Judith Kildow will discuss the development of a “Blue Economy” movement to change how we treat and think about our oceans. She is founder and director of the National Ocean Economics Program (NOEP) at the Center for the Blue Economy at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, California.
