On Thursday June 21st, our friends & partners at the Colorado Ocean Coalition will be hosting the first Ocean Frontiers film screening at the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder, Colorado. The film will begin at 7:00pm, with a Blue Drinks happy hour to kick off at 5:30pm. This is an opportunity to see some inspiring examples of how stakeholders with very different interests can address issues in ocean conservation… to mutual benefit!
We are very pleased to be partnering with COCO on this extraordinary event, which will bring many marine conservation issues to light. WILD president, Vance Martin states that “two elements are essential for conservation success—cooperation/partnership, and communications/messaging. The Colorado Ocean Coalition and Ocean Frontiers film showing illustrate this winning combination with skill and elegance.”
The Colorado Ocean Coalition, a project of The Ocean Foundation, is creating a movement to protect oceans from a mile high by uniting people from all over the world to engage in ocean advocacy. Until now, there has never been a unified voice for ocean protection in the Mountain States. This organization was founded by Vicki Goldstein with the mission to create, unite and empower a Colorado coalition with shared values, goals and actions to promote healthy oceans through education and community engagement.
