Àros na Mara World Oceans Day Festival – 2016
The World Oceans Day event held in Iona in June 2016, explored what communities, institutions and residents around the Bras d’Or estuary can do to increase resilience in the face of global climate changes and economic pressures.
Since increasing resiliency to these forces requires a solid understanding of the science of the ecosystems and the practice of management, this year’s event will examine the roles that Research, Education and Institutions such as the proposed Àros na Mara Marine Science and Energy Center can play in supporting community resiliency.
