About the event
Seaworthy is kicking off the year bringing together our virtual and IRL community with a combined panel and then happy hour! Our panel features experts across mangrove restoration, blue carbon, and regenerative systems all centered on leveraging our coastlines for building resilience and moving the needle on reversing climate change. We're also excited to kick off our partnership with Ziome, hosting our community for happy hour after the panel!
Mangroves are one of the most impactful regenerative nature based solutions. They sequester carbon, help improve water quality, build coastal resilience, and grow biodiversity as a nursery for young aquatic life. As ocean based carbon sequestration (also known as blue carbon) becomes a larger part of the ClimateTech conversation, mangroves are a model for regenerative systems and the emerging regenerative economy. Join our panel of experts tackling mangrove restoration, blue carbon, and regenerative systems and learn how you can become part of the next wave of sea change makers by applying for Seaworthy's Opportunities for Sea Change!
