Just as the ocean has inspired creativity for millennia, Oregon State University's Marine Studies Initiative (http://marinestudies.oregonstate.edu/) will harness people’s fascination with the sea to motivate the next generation of students and citizens. Through collaborative, transdisciplinary programs located in Corvallis and along the coast, this initiative will provide innovative approaches to solving ocean-related societal challenges. Come learn about emerging approaches for fostering coastal community resilience and bolstering local economies by understanding and preparing for changes due to natural hazards, climate change, and shifting demographics.
