Sustainable Seas Breakfast Talk Series.

Presented in partnership with the Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge, with Dr. Nick Lewis & Dr. Jason Mika from Auckland University.

Light breakfast/morning tea provided. Registrations required.

Join us here at the Maritime Museum with scientists around New Zealand taking part in the Sustainable Sea National Science Challenge.

This breakfast talk series will take place in June, August and September with different speakers from the challenge expressing their research for how to care for our ocean.

In recent years, advocates for sustainable oceans have focused attention on building a sustainable ‘blue economy’, where innovation practices that promote and sustain diverse industries are based on healthy marine ecosystems.

This breakfast talk will explore how New Zealand can create value from a blue economy, Dr. Nick Lewis will speak on the New Zealand based initiatives that create economic value from sustainable marine practices and activates.

While Dr. Jason Mika has been working to create a foundation for a world-leading indigenous blue economy in Aotearoa New Zealand.
