The EBM Tools Network is pleased to announce that it will co-host:

 

Webinar: The Clean Currents Coalition: A global collaborative solution to the complex plastics problem

Presented by: Molly Morse and Valeria Tamayo-Canadas from the Benioff Ocean Initiative

Date/Time: Tuesday, October 20, 2 pm US EDT/11 am US PDT/6 pm UTC

Description: Research shows that 80% of the plastic waste that ends up in the ocean comes from land, with rivers acting as one of the major pathways. Therefore, rivers provide a high-impact opportunity for intercepting plastic waste before it reaches the ocean. The Clean Currents Coalition is a global network of 9 teams combatting the flow of plastic waste from river systems to the ocean. The Coalition are piloting technologies for physical capture of plastic waste in polluted rivers and catalyzing policy-based, infrastructural, and societal change to reduce plastic waste leakage into those rivers. Join the webinar to learn more about the solutions championed by Coalition member teams in their river systems, the plastic-intercepting technologies they are piloting, and the strategies for creating behavior change in these communities.

Webinar: Investigate Your Ocean Neighborhood with OceanReports

Presented by: Christine Taylor of BOEM

Date/Time: Tuesday, July 28, 1 pm US EDT/10 am US PDT/5 pm UTC

Description: Understanding ocean areas is critical for natural resource management, offshore energy planning, navigation planning, and aquaculture siting as well as many other applications. OceanReports is a publicly available web-based application that allows users to select an Area-of-Interest (AOI) anywhere in the US Exclusive Economic Zone and instantly obtain over 70 unique infographics with analyses of the location. Infographics include the area’s energy and minerals, natural resources, transportation, infrastructure, oceanographic and biophysical conditions, and contribution to the local ocean economy. OceanReports allow users to explore pertinent ocean data through interactive pop-ups and visualizations, toggle map displays of each layer, share results by web link, and print custom reports to inform various permitting processes. Metadata, data download, background information, and the analysis rule-sets are also available. In this webinar, the tool will be explained and demonstrated with a question and answer period to follow. Use the tool at https://marinecadastre.gov/oceanreports.

Webinar: Working with unlikely stakeholders to prevent marine debris

Presented by: Nicole Baker, Founder of Net Your Problem LLC

Date/Time: Wednesday, September 2, 2 pm US EDT/11 am US PDT/6 pm UTC

Description: Despite gaps in knowledge about occurrence, sources, transport, and the spectrum of impacts of plastic in the environment, we know enough to know that the plastic pollution problem is serious and that we must seize opportunities to address it. Net Your Problem LLC is a solutions-oriented company. It provides responsible disposal services (i.e., recycling) for fishing gear in Alaska and has programs in development for all US coasts. Since 2017, we have recycled 881,000 lbs of fishing gear, made possible by working with what we call “unlikely partners”. Past partners have included not only a variety of stakeholders who have a financial interest in improving waste management in coastal communities - from the fishing industry to Native tribes and community groups to local, regional, and federal governments, even intergovernmental institutions, but also construction companies, breweries, and a fishing apparel company. If you are interested in collaborating with us to increase the amount of debris we can divert from landfills and incinerators and prevent from entering the environment, we would love to tell you more about our work and look forward to your attendance.

Webinar: The effects of climate change in marine spatial planning: pathways and solutions

Presented by: Catarina Frazão Santos of the University of Lisbon and NOVA-SBE

Date/Time: Thursday, October 1, 1 pm US EDT/10 am US PDT/5 pm UTC

Description: As marine spatial planning (MSP) operates in a changing ocean, properly addressing and integrating climate effects is vital. However, few marine spatial plans properly or explicitly consider climate change. This is a complex topic, full of intricacies, dimensions, and challenges (scientific, socioeconomic, and political), and multiple solutions will be needed. We highlight ways forward, based on real examples around the globe, on how climate change can be integrated into MSP. Links with global ocean governance goals and sustainable development will be explored.
