WORLD OCEANS DAY CELEBRATION WEBCAST
On June 8, IGLO, in collaboration with the World Ocean Network (WON), will be celebrating World Oceans Day (WOD) with a live webcast featuring NOAA's Dr. Chris Sabine speaking on Ocean Acidification.
Every year, World Ocean Day brings together more than 250 organizations spanning five continents and reaching more than 150 million visitors in museums and science centers, aquariums, educational charities, institutions and NGOs. Designated by the United Nations and supported by the World Ocean Network and The Ocean Project, World Oceans Day is a celebration designed to raise awareness about the importance of the ocean and the impact of our daily actions on the marine environment. This year's theme is "One Ocean, One Climate, One Future."
Dr. Sabine's presentation on ocean acidification will address one of the most crucial issues linking oceans and climate. A live stream of his webcast will be available on IGLO's website (www.astc.org/iglo) on Monday, June 8 at 2:30 PM EDT.
The webstream will be live at 2:15 p.m. EDT on Monday, June 8th. To access the webstream, go to http://codian.oar.net. Put in MAGPI 5417 into the conference ID field, choose your preferred stream rate and click ‘stream this conference.’ A chat box will appear as well, which will allow individuals at your institution to ask questions of the speaker.
MAGPI is happy to be partnering with ASTC, NOAA and the Internet2 Commons to bring you this program!
