About Capitol Hill Ocean Week 2021


About Capitol Hill Ocean Week 2021

Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW), convened by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, gathers people from across the U.S. and around the world to engage in dialogue on how to sustain the health of our ocean and Great Lakes, and especially for all who call these places home and depend on them for their livelihoods. This year, on June 8-10th, we will hear from people working on this issue in communities across the country, listening to learn from their perspectives on how to grow a more racially equitable and just ocean and Great Lakes conservation movement.

CHOW is open to the public and free to attendees. The Foundation relies on the generous support of sponsors to host CHOW.

The World Ocean is essential to life on Earth. It produces about half of the oxygen that sustains the planet, feeds and employs millions of people, and is pivotal to regulating the climate as it absorbs massive amounts of carbon dioxide. As important as the ocean is, much of it remains underexplored. Join us online for this month’s Earth Series Lecture, moderated by the Climate School’s Founding Dean, Alex Halliday, in conversation with two of Columbia University’s leading ocean explorers, Sonya Dyrhman and Maya Tolstoy.
