Wendy Schmidt brings an optimistic approach to addressing critical ocean issues and provides a framework for viewing the ocean as part of an interactive living system, crucial to life on land. Join us as Wendy Schmidt describes how her investment in innovative solutions and support for scientific and technological breakthroughs is creating momentum for ocean health leading to the restoration of this vital planetary resource.

2) What can Canada learn from climate policy in other countries?
3) What can labour, business, and activists do to help speed up decarbonization?
4) What key policies are needed?
