OFI's Social Sciences and Humanities Working Group presents a series of eight "people and the ocean"-focused webinars. Each webinar will feature a presentation by a marine and coastal SSH expert reflecting on key issues in their field, supplemented by short presentations by two discussants and an open question and answer period involving registrants. The series as a whole seeks to inform governance and provide an introduction to SSH-led — but increasingly inter- and trans-disciplinary — efforts to understand complex interactions between society, economy, culture, and marine and coastal environments.
