179: What We Can Do After Rio+20

The reports on Rio+20 are in, and they are not good for the ocean. Many experts and activists from around the globe worked hard to formulate serious policy recommendations and priorities, and went to Rio to advocate for inclusion of ocean sustainability in the final report. Many  of these hard working individuals and groups left Rio disappointed.

In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will suggest ways in which we might move beyond Rio+20 and will invite us to mobilize as CITIZENS of the OCEAN in order to begin to demonstrate our commitment through individual responsibility and collective action.

Take the CITIZENS of the OCEAN pledge today!
