Sustainable Coasts Panel Talk at Depot Artspace Thursday 15 Sept at 6:30pm
A panel talk took place between three invited speakers who discussed how science, politics, and carbon emissions relate
to the threat of sea level rise on the Auckland region.
Professor Giovanni Coco is a coastal oceanographer based in the School of Environment in the Faculty of Science at the University of Auckland. He is also a Devonport resident and so has a particular knowledge of the potential impacts that sea level rise will have on the locality.
Alex Rogers is the Executive Officer of the Hauraki Gulf Forum and will share his kōrero about the politics of protecting and restoring the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park to lead to a healthier future for Tīkapa Moana, Te Moananui-ā-Toi.
Richard Wallis is the director of The Carbon Cycle Company and inventor of the Carbon Cycle Composter. He helps individuals, companies and communities to reduce CO2 emissions created through food waste that could help to prevent more than 70 billion tons of greenhouse gases over the next three decades while feeding people, increasing economic benefits, and preserving threatened ecosystems.
