No water, no life, no blue, no green.
-Sylvia Earle, American Marine Biologist

The Save Our Seas Talk Event is online webinar where practitioners from around the world will gather to share their case studies and discuss their challenges. As habitants of this water world, we make huge impacts on life under water, whether we are eating fish, living in coastal areas, or just breathing the air around us. How are all humans stakeholders of ocean sustainability? What are some of the innovative solutions and trends happening in the world of marine pollution reduction and the seafood industry? 

We are very exited to host this talk event under the following two theme in two consecutive sessions, welcoming such a great list of guest speakers for each sessions!

  • Session II
