This week, several members of the Sea Around Us Project head off to the 2010 meeting of the American Association of the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in San Diego, California. On Saturday, Daniel Pauly is a speaker on the panel Denial, Detente, and Decisions: Fisheries Science at the Crossroads. Also that day, Villy Christensen has co-organized a panel titled Bridging Science and Society for Sustainability: The Role of Visualization, where Sherman Lai will be speaking. Jennifer Jacquet has organized and will speak on the panel Preserving the Global Commons Through Conservation and Cooperation on Sunday. We look forward to reporting back on the results of this big event.
