With Peter Neill
Wednesday, July 20, 7 pm, Carver Memorial Gallery, 11 Church St.
This talk provides a persuasive argument for how sustainability and careful use can establish a new paradigm for adaptation to a changing climate, and around which to build a new post-industrial, post-consumption based global community. Peter Neill, author of The Once and Future Ocean, discusses why the ocean matters and the necessity for a new, sustainable paradigm away from unrestricted growth based on fossil fuel-driven consumption. Neill will discuss new solutions, emerging recommendations for change, and specific ideas for preserving the health of the ocean. Peter Neill is founder and director of the World Ocean Observatory (worldoceanobservatory.org) and served 20 years as President of the South Street Seaport Museum, New York.
