Jon Christensen, Peter Kareiva & Jerry Schubel

California is a leader in the Pacific World, particularly in ocean conservation. Can we also lead the way in continuing to ensure the Pacific is a vibrant resource for our economy and for feeding the world? On the hundredth anniversary of two international exhibitions celebrating California’s emerging role in the Pacific World, the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco and Panama-California Exposition in San Diego in 1915, we look back at our legacy in the Pacific Ocean and forward to the future.

Jon Christensen, editor of Boom: A Journal of California, will lead a wide-ranging conversation on this topic with Peter Kareiva, newly appointed director of the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Jerry Schubel, president and CEO of the Aquarium of the Pacific.
