We were delighted to welcome the inspirational @SylviaEarle, oceanographer, National Geographic Explorer-In-Residence, founder of @MissionBlue and 2009 TED Prize Winner to the #departmentofseaweed at the #wef20 @cooperhewitt exhibition #partneringwithnature.
Peter Thomson, the UN Secretary General's Special Envoy for the Ocean, visited the Department of Seaweed (DoS) at the World Economic Forum 50th Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters. Good conversation about the regenerative role of kelp and seaweed in sustainable blue economy and aquaculture.
