    Join EQ and the Buckminster Fuller Institute for an Eco Sprint on Ocean Stewardship. You’ve been nominated as a key person with the profound knowledge and skills to bring to bear as we do a deep dive on the future of our oceans.

    The EQ Eco Sprint is a bold approach to innovation that focuses on actionable ideas for positive environmental change. This workshop brings together a diverse group of people, from scientists to entrepreneurs to brands and policymakers, to IMAGINE, DISCOVER, and AMPLIFY solutions for critical environmental challenges. The Eco Sprint mission is to develop solutions that can be fostered, implemented, invested in or amplified to create tangible action.

    Join us on July 11-12th in San Francisco for a two-day Eco Sprint where we will workshop:
    What are the key lessons learned to date from approaching our oceans in a regenerative way?
    How might we learn principles from our oceans to inspire shifts in capital, policy and culture that can in turn help our oceans and communities thrive?
    Where do we need to go from here, how fast, and who are unlikely allies we may engage with along the way?

    Healthy oceans and coastal ecosystems support life on earth. Oceans are the foundation of global industry, commerce, trade, policy, health, social and cultural systems. Our oceans are a critical component to protecting global populations from the growing impacts of climate change to the deterioration of our oceans.

    We would be honored to work with you to cross-pollinate ocean stewardship practices, identify new possible futures and prototype new solutions.
