The Collaborative Institute

Happy World Oceans Day from all of us at the
Collaborative Institute for Oceans, Climate, & Security!

At this point, it seems safe to say that the First Global Conference on Oceans, Climate and Security (GC ’12) was a resounding success. Our attendees included representatives from sixteen countries and seventeen states. Sectors attending included the military, private industry, consulting firms, academia, government officials, non-profit organizations, and concerned and interested citizens.

Hundreds of scholars and experts from all different sides of academia came together to address a great number of climate-related issues over the course of those three days.

May 22, 2012, Robbin Peach, CIOCS Executive Director, speaks at the Global Conference.

Highlights included Keynotes by NOAA Administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco at the UMass Club, and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus and Weather Underground’s Dr. Jeff Masters at UMass Boston, as well as remarks by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick.
