Featured Session: Ocean Vibe Shift: Changing Tides for Ocean Conservation

Mar 17, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Vibrant, beautiful, and acting as protective barriers against wave action, coral reefs enable people to live, play and build their homes and businesses closer to the ocean. But with more than half of the world’s coral reefs dying, many are feeling the impact as these ecosystems teeter on collapse. Yet all is not lost!

In the midst of a cultural vibe shift, two climate innovators discuss the extraordinary changes afoot for ocean conservation. Globally, there's a new trend emerging, and innovators are starting to change how we restore and care for our coral reefs and marine habitats. AI technology, and NFTs all being enlisted to save the oceans. Come hear entrepreneur John Paul DeJoria and climate scientist- marine biologist Dr. Deborah Brosnan explain how to be part of the oceanic vibe shift. Don’t be left behind.
