    Leadership and Macro-Ethics

    To execute transformative response to the challenges of the 21st century we will need a new style of leadership action: from governance and corporate consciousness to manufacturing, engineering and design, from research to education to new moral standards at all levels of society. What are the change agents that will allow us to realize change? What are the financial tools that will include equity and justice? This week on World Ocean Radio, part 44 of the BLUEprint Series, we discuss macro-ethics and leadership in the fields of engineering and the planning, design and construction of sustainable, socially responsible, environmentally sound and politically fair systems of development.

    Third Nature

    Third Nature

    Since the origins of planet earth, through the foundation of civilization, to the exhausted land we live in today, we are faced with a Third Nature. If we can abandon the old paradigms, we can make the shift toward water--our watersheds, rivers, lakes and primarily coasts and ocean--the places we will turn for our energy, our fresh water, our food and all of the things that contribute to our sustainability and survival.

    How to Implement the Blue Economy

    How to Implement the Blue Economy

    The Blue Economy is providing new investment in ocean resources. How might individual investors do blue economy investing the right way, and which investments meet the criteria for true blue investing? This week on World Ocean Radio, part 40 of the BLUEprint Series, host Peter Neill dives into the true meaning of the often over-used "blue economy" terminology and describes his recent discovery of a strategic initiatives portfolio conceived by JPI Oceans in Europe that strives to increase the impact of national investments in marine and maritime research and innovation. And he shares the values, goals and objectives that propose a structure around which specific investments could be made to achieve social and monetary return while achieving a commitment to sustainability and the ocean.

gobbledegook

this is just more bull*** making the unprovable case that man caused global warming. climates change and in a geological time frame the world will most certainly not be the same in a century or two with and without mans influence. making common cause with the CCP and tearing down this county and limiting our children’s future potential for wealth and fulfillment will do nothing to curb your so called catastrophic climate change.

A gem for everyone concerned about our ocean

I look forward to the insights and editorial confronting the seriousness of climate change and how deeply we are impacting our oceans. In just 5 minutes, Peter packs a powerful punch. Thank you!
