Science Week lectures

Organised by PsychSoc, doors open at 6.30pm

Professor Roberts will look at what kind of decisions we are going to have to make about the oceans as the population grows. Looking at how we have impacted the oceans in the past, in the present and how the future of our oceans is in our hands.

It is estimated that 1 billion people depend on the ocean for a primary source of animal protein. What choices are we going to have to make to allow such a resource to continue feeding humanity, alongside the projected population growth and harsh warnings from scientists internationally about over-fishing and pollution? This talk will give an overview of the current state of our oceans. It will focus on how humans have impacted on them in the past, in the present and how the future of our oceans is in our hands.
