Rethinking Ocean Conservation: Technology and Law in Action

November 03, 2017 • 8:30 AM • TBD

DELPF's 2017 symposium will look at the major challenges the oceans currently face, ocean conservation success stories, and how law and new technologies are being used to change how we think about ocean conservation and governance. Three expert panels will discuss these themes, followed by three breakout sessions where students and other attendees will have a chance to work in small groups with experts to address three distinct ocean challenges. Each group will focus their discussion around a series of questions related to the specific ocean challenge. Finally, the experts leading the discussions will come together for one more panel to discuss general thoughts on the breakout sessions. The symposium will end with refreshments and a networking opportunity for panelists and students. Breakfast and lunch will be served. The 2017 symposium is being held in conjunction with the Duke Environmental Law & Policy Clinic's 10th anniversary celebration. Co-sponsored by DELPF and the Environmental Law & Policy Clinic.
