AltaSea Webinar: Where Economic Development Meets Ocean Sustainability

Courtesy of AltaSea, Los Angeles, California.

On August 12th, AltaSea will host a dialogue covering the convergence of the ocean economy and sustainability from a local, national and global perspective. This discussion will focus on investing in zero-emissions technology and infrastructure, fighting climate change, and creating green jobs.

It will also look at how to measure the size and changing nature of economic relationships with the oceans and coasts in order to guide choices and monitor progress including the economics of climate change adaptation in coastal regions.

The Ocean Economy, the first new job category designated by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation in over 10 years, provides over 660,000 direct jobs and over US$143 billion of total economic output in the state.
