Miami, FL – June 14, 2021 – Seaworthy Collective, a new Miami-based start-up that empowers a community of current and aspiring ocean entrepreneurs (known as Sea Change Makers), is celebrating World Oceans Day with their Ideas for Sea Change: Reversing Climate Change with Regenerative Mariculture for World Oceans Day 2021 event.
On World Oceans Day, June 8, 2021, join the organization for a panel featuring two of the leading experts on seaweeds and carbon sequestration – technologies that will reverse, not just mitigate, climate change, driving global ocean regeneration.
Dr. Brian Von Herzen, Founder & Executive Director, Climate Foundation, and Dr. Loretta Roberson, Associate Scientist, Marine Biological Laboratory, will join Seaworthy Collective’s Founder and CEO, Daniel Kleinman, to discuss why seaweeds are the foundational building blocks for the future ocean economy.
“Seaweeds and seagrasses are the ‘technology’ I’m most excited about for regenerative ocean impact. They sequester 20x more carbon dioxide than terrestrial forests, grow much faster, and are much more scalable,” said Kleinman. “Additionally, they have so many uses for the future; from a sustainable food supply, livestock feed that cuts methane emissions, and even as alternatives to plastics! When it comes to understanding the regenerative perspective for our ocean, seaweed is the foundational piece to reversing climate change and restoring biodiversity!”
Jun 08, 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM EDT
Zoom details sent to registered attendees.
Free and open to the public.
Seaworthy Collective is also participating in the Ocean Rescue Alliance’s World Ocean Day Event at the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science on June 6, 2021. This event is open to the public and additional details can be found on the Ocean Rescue Alliance’s website.
Seaworthy Collective was created in 2020 in Miami, Florida, to empower a community of current and aspiring ocean entrepreneurs, known as Sea Change Makers, to innovate for regenerative ocean impact. Seaworthy co-creates and crowdsources start-ups to develop collective ocean innovation pipelines at scale, partnering with local incubators and accelerators to tailor their programs to serve them. Seaworthy builds these pipelines through its venture studio and pitch competition programs, democratizing and diversifying opportunities for interdisciplinary ocean innovation and entrepreneurship. Seaworthy leverages a global network of mentors and strategic collaborators, as well as South Florida’s ecosystem of maritime business and research, catalyzing systemic change by empowering entrepreneurs to overcome industry siloes and drive the development of a regenerative blue economy that solves the ocean’s greatest problems.
