Fireside Chat Series: Blue Economy
Join us next Tuesday, January 22nd at 6:30pm for our first Fireside Chat Speaker Series. Engage in conversation about the "Blue Economy" defined by the World Bank as "the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods and jobs, and ocean ecosystem health" -- the equivalent of the "triple bottom line" in corporate business circles. What is the blue economy? How is it different than the traditional maritime products, jobs and services that have defined ports like Gloucester for the last 400 years? What and where are the emerging opportunities? Tom Balf of OceanVest LLC will be joined in this discussion by Ken Riehl, CEO of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce and Katie Kahl, Ph.D., Director of the University of Massachusetts Gloucester Marine Station. We hope you will join us for an engaging and lively discussion!
