The legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle, TED Prize winner and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, visited the Monterey Institute this week to talk to aspiring marine policy professionals and give them some career advice. Sylvia was named TIME magazine´s first “Hero for the Planet,” and is well known for her ocean research (logging more than 7,000 hours underwater) and activism for the protection of our oceans.
The moment I stepped onto Tobacco Caye, I felt like I had found a small slice of paradise. The vibrant, yet small fishing community off the southern coast of Belize is amazingly beautiful and astounding.
The fall 2012 class at MIIS is one of the largest incoming classes in the 57-year history of the Institute, at 420 students. The group includes students hailing from 35 countries and speaking 28 languages.
Alan Lovewell (MAIEP '10) and Oren Frey (MAIEP '11) are living out the Monterey Institute's mission of producing leaders with solutions to a variety of global challenges. These graduates of the International Environmental Policy Program are working hard to re-connect consumers in Monterey Bay to local fishermen and the product they offer through their business venture, Local Catch Monterey Bay.
The challenge asked students to develop and implement a plan for lowering the environmental impact of their campuses and to educate and engage on-campus facilities managers and fellow students.
