Society and the Sea 2016 Conference: Society and the Sea

Society and the Sea Conference

Dates: 15-16 September 2016

Location: University of Greenwich, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London, UK

The Greenwich Maritime Centre at the University of Greenwich held its first international interdisciplinary conference on the theme 'Society and the Sea'.

It is well established that the sea plays a fundamental role in the lives of millions of people worldwide. However, beyond people who have a direct connection to the sea, there is limited awareness of the importance of the oceans for society and the range of opportunities it offers. Maritime issues are highly complex and require multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder approaches to create innovative solutions.
