Summary of Conference
The Blue Mind Summit is a annual conference on an emerging field called neuroconservation. This event will bring together neuroscientists, ocean scientists, economists, photographers, writers, explorers and ocean advocates. The founder of neuroconservation is Dr. Wallace J. Nichols who is a scientist, activist and communitiy organizer who works to inspire a deeper connection with nature.
The knowledge I receive at the Blue Mind Summit will be given back to others in various ways. I will incorporate neuroconservation into my work with fishermen and use it as a tool to remind them of their connection to nature and our inherent right to preserve it. I will act as a catalyst for transformation by continuing to work closely with coastal communities and governments in establishing sustainable coastal policy. I will engage with my community, my friends and family in conversations about nature and the ocean and why we must take better care of our water.
I believe that this summit will help me to advance my career and passion for making a difference on this planet. Your support will be very much appreciated and I am forever grateful.
