HOW TO GET INVOLVED WITH THE BLUE ECONOMY SUMMIT

Interested in supporting the Blue Economy Summit? Check out the different ways to get involved below.

Contribute to the Blue Economy Summit

A contribution to the Blue Economy Summit will support student attendance, food, venue, speaker travel, and technology support. Should you like to specify a specific area for your donation, please contact Connie Wang, Student Cabinet Treasurer at connie.wang6@duke.edu. 

Set Up a Table at the Summit

In addition to attending as an individual, you can demonstrate industry leadership through your organization by setting up a table at the Lunch Networking Hour. Tabling will offer an additional opportunity to connect with young professionals at Duke and other top oceans universities at the Summit. Contact Lexi Addison (alexandra.addison@duke.edu) for more details or click the button below to register to table.

“Sponsor a Student” to attend the Blue Economy Summit

With a modest donation of $30, Alumni and other professionals can sponsor a student to attend the Summit and Opening Reception. We observe a “no questions asked” policy that allows students to opt out of payment if they are financially limited. Your donation allows us to cover their cost of attendance and make the Summit a more accessible event. Please address checks to “Duke University” and write “Oceans@Duke” in the memo line.

Sponsorship Opportunities

The sponsorship opportunities are structured like the zones of the ocean, with the top-level sponsors positioned in the epipelagic or the upper-level ocean, bursting with life and light. All levels, from the hadopelagic to the epipelagic, support student leaders in the blue economy space and provide opportunities to establish brand presence and demonstrate industry leadership at the hybrid in-person and online Blue Economy Summit. Please contact Stephanie Jordan, Student Cabinet Sponsorship Chair at stephanie.jordan730@duke.edu.
