GOA-ON webinar series 2021 (text & video)

Webinar Speaker:

Dr. Kristina Barclay

Coordinator, MEOPAR OA Community of Practice

Postdoctoral Associate, University of Calgary, Canada

Webinar Description:

The MEOPAR OA Community of Practice (CoP) was formed in 2018, with the overarching goal of sharing knowledge and improving linkages between OA knowledge creators and end-users across Canada. The OA CoP is led by two Co-Leads, Dr. Helen Gurney-Smith (DFO) and Dr. Brent Else (University of Calgary), and a Coordinator, Dr. Kristina Barclay (University of Calgary, MEOPAR), with guidance from an interdisciplinary Steering Committee from across the country. OA CoP objectives include the development of (1) knowledge transfer and community engagement via accessible content, (2) resources and databases, and (3) best-practices for data collection and sharing involving research groups, stake-holders, and community-based research. In this webinar, Dr. Barclay will present some of the key activities to date. This includes new online resources and blog series, as well as updates on the development of future projects. The GOA-ON webinar series has four sponsoring organizations: (1) GOA-ON, the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network, (2) NOAA, the United States National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, (3) IAEA OA-ICC, the International Atomic Energy Agency – Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre, and (4) IOC-UNESCO – the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

Earth Day: a playlist for fighting ocean acidification (text & audio)

As an Environmental Studies major, I always look forward to Earth Day in April, and now you can too! As happy as this day is to be thankful for all the Earth has given us, the uninvited party guest that is climate change has put quite a damper on the festivities.

Earth Day is now a reminder to take action and fight for our planet. In order to pump you up to get you ready to recycle some plastic, cut down some buckthorn and write to your local representative, I have curated a Climate Change playlist just for you!

Time is Up – Poppy, Diplo

This song is a total bop. The techno beeps paired with Poppy’s monotone delivery really set the serious nature of climate change. The song tells the story of an android that is tasked with saving the Earth for humanity only to realize that no matter how hard it tries, humans always end up continuing to destroy it, and thus the Earth can only be saved if humans disappear. This catchy track has an earworm of a beat thanks to Diplo’s collaboration on the composition. Although this song has lyrics that are rather convictive, this song is more a warning. Our time is up to not act on climate change, we have stalled too long, and now is the time for action.

An analysis of community perceptions and policy responses to ocean acidification on the West Coast (text & video)

Ocean acidification disrupts the carbonate chemistry of coastal ecosystems, which indirectly and directly affects communities that depend on critical marine organisms. Ocean acidification research typically seeks to understand natural system responses; yet, there is insufficient research that examines community and institutional responses or, more generally, their vulnerability to ocean acidification. Considering the insufficient information to direct policy efforts to combat ocean acidification, this project aims to understand the Dungeness crabbers’ perceptions of the adaptive capacity of ocean acidification and other environmental stressors. By understanding the perceptions of the four coastal communities, alongside perceptions of Oregonian decision and policy makers, the project hopes to contribute to broader efforts to apply human adaptive capacity to ocean acidification.

Future priorities for adressing ocean acidification in the Mediterranean Sea Monaco Ocean Week 2021 (text & video)

This is a webinar on Ocean Acidification in the Mediterranean organized in the framework of the Monaco Ocean Week 2021: Future Priorities for Addressing Ocean Acidification in the Mediterranean: from research to policy. The session was held on March 24th and organized by the IUCN and OA Med-Hub of GOA-ON with the collaboration of the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco. Despite long-standing research programmes and major efforts to increase awareness in the Mediterranean region, policies and mitigation efforts that are specifically targeted at Ocean Acidification are still thin on the ground.

*For Part One, following an overview of the status of OA science in the Mediterranean region, this webinar examined the socio-economic aspects of OA, the reasons behind the policy gaps, the actions that can realistically implemented at national and regional levels, and the opportunities the current enhanced global focus on climate change could bring to improve the resilience of Mediterranean marine ecosystems. At the end of this part, some highlights on how to better engage Southern Mediterranean countries in OA science and actions were presented.

*In Part Two, a discussion panel (Q/A session) drew answers from critical questions related to OA and climate change from experts and policy-makers from various Mediterranean countries, and beyond.

Translation into French will be made available.
