Event Description

What would it mean to live in cities designed to foster feelings of connectedness to the ocean? In this webinar we explore the vital relationship between healthy ocean environments and the coastal communities that depend on marine-based resources. Modern society is dependent upon ocean resources in more ways than people realize – from oil and gas extraction and wind energy, to global fisheries production, to medicinal compounds derived from sea creatures. As coastal cities begin planning for climate change and rising sea levels, renowned author and architecture professor Timothy Beatley sees opportunities for rethinking the relationship between urban development and the ocean.


The discussion will explore the connections between urban design, resource extraction, and educating urbanites about the wonders of marine life – and the impacts that emerging, coastal-focused practices can advance economies, social cohesion, and public health.
