Live Stream: 'Sustainable Oceans' at the 2015 CGI Annual Meeting
With more than 40 percent of the world’s population living within 100 kilometers of the ocean and 80 percent of global trade water-based, oceans are key to sustaining individual livelihoods and the global economy. But the combined threats of overfishing and climate change stress our oceans, demanding the need for cross-sector partnerships designed to increase ocean and coastal resilience and establish and promote sustainable fishing practices.
Live at 2:30pm EDT, as part of the Clinton Global Initiative’s 2015 Annual Meeting, VICE CEO and co-founder Shane Smith will moderate a discussion panel titled 'Sustainable Oceans.' Joining the panel will be actor Ted Danson, oceanographer Sylvia Earle, Executive Director of the Mesoamerican Reef Fund Maria José González, and President of the Republic of Seychelles, James Michel. President Bill Clinton will deliver opening remarks.
