Blue Urbanism with Dr. Timothy Beatley

The ocean covers 70 percent of Earth’s surface and is essential to our livelihood. So, how can we design and operate our cities to better protect our blue planet? Dr. Timothy Beatley tackles that question in his latest book, “Blue Urbanism,” which takes an in-depth look at the issues connecting our cities and our ocean—from sustainable fishing practices and renewable energy to public education about marine life. Come hear Dr. Beatley discuss “Blue Urbanism” and the importance of prioritizing a healthy ocean.
