dc.description.abstract On Thursday, April 19 at 7:30 PM , the Honorable Dr. Jane Lubchenco will speak on “Hope for People and the Ocean” as the 2018 Robert H. Woodworth Lecturer in Science. This event will take place in the Tishman Auditorium at Bennington College. As part of the Spring 2018 Science Workshop Series , on Friday, April 20 at 1:00 PM , Lubchenco will be speaking on “Science in a Post-Truth Word.” This event will take place in Dickinson 232 on the College’s campus. Can we use the ocean without using it up? The task is daunting given current trajectories in fisheries, plastics and other pollutants, and the impacts of climate change and ocean acidification. However, new scientific insights, tools, and partnerships are providing hope that it’s not too late to transition to more sustainable practices and policies. In her lecture, Lubchenco draws on her four years as the Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and the Administrator of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), her two years as the first U.S. Science Envoy for the Ocean, and her decades of research around the world to summarize the importance to people of sustainable use of the ocean, and approaches that are working. en_US
