Latest from World Ocean Radio: Global Ocean Commission

There are many organizations, conferences and commissions dedicated to ocean policy, research and education. Yet public perceptions of ocean issues have not changed much in the last ten years, nor has there been encouraging progress on ocean-related issues. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will introduce yet another ocean advocate--the Global Ocean Commission--convened by a panel of figures from around the world intent on finding solutions to the crises facing the world ocean.

Listen to the episode here and you can listen to previous episodes here. World Ocean Radio, a project of the W2O, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays. Peter Neill, Director of the World Ocean Observatory (W2O) and host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects.
