Ocean and Biodiversity in the Run-Up to COP15


Virtual Ocean Dialogues 2021

The world faces an unprecedented biodiversity crisis, brought on by the rapid transformation of the natural environment and global climate change through human development. But the ocean can provide solutions to these challenges: it regulates global climate, feeds communities around the world, and provides a source of income and a way of life for millions of people. If sustainably managed, the ocean can continue to provide resources and adaptation capacity, supporting people and economies through its rich biodiversity.

The Convention on Biological Diversity’s COP15 will adopt new global goals and targets for biodiversity, providing a major opportunity to change the trajectory for the ocean and the life therein. How do we best make use of this historic opportunity? Speakers: Kirk Humphrey, Somini Sengupta, Ebba Lepage, M. Sanjayan, Carlos Manuel Rodríguez Echandi, Sheldon Whitehouse, Elizabeth Mrema

An Origin Story of the Blue New Deal


June 17th, 2021

This week, the inside scoop on how a climate policy gets made. In 2019, when the Green New Deal resolution was unveiled, How to Save a Planet co-host Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson noticed something big (and blue) was missing: the ocean. The ocean is not just a victim of climate change, it’s also a hero, offering many climate solutions. Ayana, along with a bunch of other ocean policy nerds, didn’t want these solutions to go ignored. So how does a plea to remember the ocean become federal policy? In this episode, we learn from people who made it happen, how the power of the pen (or keyboard) can help catalyze climate action.
