Plenary: National Ocean Policy

For the first time in history the United States has a national ocean policy. It is based on an Executive Order signed by President Barack Obama in July 2010. This followed on the recommendations of two major blue ribbon ocean panels in 2003 and 2004 and extensive public hearings in 2009. It is supposed to use "ecosystem-based coastal and marine spatial planning," to coordinate agencies and ocean uses in ways that reduce user conflicts while assuring the sustainable health and ecological recovery of our public seas. This session at Blue Vision Summit 3 will include key leaders who can explain the ongoing process to make this happen and the role that citizens, local and regional stakeholders can and must play.

PANELISTS: Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (U.S. Senate), John Weber (New England Regional Ocean Council), Dana Goward (U.S. Coast Guard), Dr. Larry Robinson (NOAA)

MODERATOR: Jeff Burnside (NBC Miami)

Organizers: David Helvarg (Blue Frontier Campaign), Sarah Chasis (NRDC) & Dave Wilmot (Ocean Champions)
