On February 22 Aquarium of the Pacific President and CEO Jerry Schubel will speak at the University of California, San Diego’s (UCSD) Greenovation Forum. The forum is organized by the university’s Sustainability Solutions Institute and is open to the public.
Schubel will be a panel speaker during the session, “Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning: The Ecological, Economic, and Governance Principles for Managing the Ocean.” Schubel and three other ocean use experts will discuss ecosystem-based coastal and marine spatial planning (CMSP), which is a process that informs the spatial distribution of activities in the ocean so that existing and emerging uses can be maintained, use conflicts reduced, and ecosystem health and services protected and sustained for future generations.
Panel speakers include Dr. Kathryn Mengerink, senior attorney and director, Oceans Program, and Environmental Law Institute lecturer, Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at the UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography; Dr. John Helly, director, Laboratory for Earth and Environmental Science, San Diego Supercomputer Center and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD; and Erin Prahler, JD, Early Career Policy Fellow at the Center for Ocean Solutions.
