On November 8 - 9, 2018, MIT Media Lab Open Ocean is hosting the 2018 National Ocean Exploration Forum: All Hands on Deck . This forum builds on the past National Ocean Exploration Forums. The goal of the 2018 Forum is to imagine creative new ways to make the ocean so pervasive in modern culture that everyone has a positive association with and understanding of the sea.
The forum will bring together leaders in ocean exploration, industry, entertainment, recreation, art, and design to empower an open, inclusive global community of ocean explorers addressing the following themes:
On November 10, Boston will host the Boston Ocean Day , a public day of opportunities to participate in ocean exploration. NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer and exploration partners will host a live interaction and panel discussion from 3 - 4 pm ET for visitors at the New England Aquarium IMAX theater.
