This exciting series of speakers and panels will focus on critical coastal issues and related science and societal response.
The University of Rhode Island (URI) Honors Colloquium is the largest public event sponsored by the University. In 2021, the 58th annual Colloquium is titled Sustaining Our Shores (SOS) and will include a public lecture series, an honors course, and related events (e.g., movies, art). The SOS has been scheduled to coincide with the first year of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 to shine light on this critical topic and time. SOS will cover three themes: Coasts in Crisis; The Future of Seafood and Plastic and Marine Pollution. Public events will be held on Tuesday evenings at 7 PM RDT/EST this September to December, and will be broadcast virtually. Details will be posted here: https://web.uri.edu/hc/. We hope to have people from around the world tune in!
