The Ocean’s Turn? Conference Report

In the Fall of 2018, The Fletcher School at Tufts University convened an important conference entitled “The Ocean’s Turn?”. The conference brought together leaders from around the globe to examine the critical issues facing the ocean today.

Through engaging keynotes, TED-style talks, and panel discussions, we explored the maritime sphere from the perspectives of science, business, law and politics, investment and the economy, security, and international relations. The conference evaluated important maritime sectors, such as global shipping, the food industry, and the energy sector, and dove deep into geopolitics, BlueTech, maritime security and policy, environmental imperatives, and other vital issues.
