The economic value of the world’s oceans, the ‘Blue Economy’ is in the realm of $US 3-5 trillion.  In Australia, this is expected to grow faster than our GDP, and is projected to contribute around $100 billion a year by 2025.

There is an urgent need to understand the interconnected realms of geology, oceanography and biodiversity, and how threats like climate change will affect our oceans.  Our oceans are increasingly under stress, and the challenge now is how do we strike the balance between economic and social benefits and ecosystem sustainability?

Join us as host author and broadcaster Michael Vietch asks some of our leading scientific minds how we deal with issues like oil and gas exploration, species migration and climate change.

In association with the AMSA 2018 Conference Canyons to Coast.  For more information and bookings click here
