Scripps-Rady Ocean Plastic Pollution Challenge
Professor and Director of the Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego.
"There are countless ways to address environmental challenges, and we each want to maximize our individual impact. This program offers participants an opportunity to consider ways to design strategies for combating the flow of plastics into California's oceans, building from insights and experiences from the diverse expertise from across Scripps, Rady, and the rest of UC San Diego."
Professor of Behavioral Sciences and Marketing, Center for Social Innovation and Impact (CSII) at the Rady School of Management, UC San Diego.
“Despite countless initiatives, programs and policies attempting to curb the flow of plastic to our oceans, it is now evident that this challenge continues to grow. Acknowledging the need for a multi-pronged approach, this program offers participants an opportunity to learn from world experts in data sciences, marine sciences, behavioral sciences, and more, and to apply this knowledge to develop system-based strategies for combating the flow of plastics into California's oceans, with the support of Scripps, Rady, and the UC San Diego community.”
