Ocean Policy Working Group aims to facilitate cross-disciplinary discussions and collaborations that explore the political, economic, scientific and cultural dimensions of human interactions with the ocean. Our activities examine current issues involving the global oceans and the impact of these issues on marine policy and ocean governance. We strive to relate to an audience beyond those that directly study the coast.
Some of the areas of discussion which OPWG explores include:
- Ocean governance
- Coastal communities
- Human health & marine food supply
- Cultural connections to the coast
- Marine resources management
- Environmental change
Even though the OPWG coordinators may be socially distanced this year, we hope to bring those in the Duke Community and beyond closer to the ocean environment. Check out our Upcoming Events page to stay engaged!
