We anticipate over 60 participants representing different branches of government who are all involved in informing policy through the best science. There will be two separate sessions, one on Oceans Policy and the other on Climate Policy, followed by a working lunch where we will break out into groups and discuss opportunities in this Congress and beyond regarding these issues. We will bring attention to the Nicholas Institute as a resource and conduit of the latest scientific research.
