Healthy Oceans as an Economic DriverJune 27 | 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM (add to my calendar)
With this event, the Center for American Progress launches a new initiative to better define and quantify the value of our Blue Economy. We will focus on four ocean and coastal industries in various stages of understanding and development—sustainable fisheries, renewable energy, tourism and recreation, and coastal restoration—in a discussion with leaders from government, industry, and advocacy about the key role healthy oceans play in creating American jobs and enhancing prosperity in coastal regions.
