In commemoration of World Oceans Day (June 8), as well as the UN’s upcoming NYC Ocean Conference (June 5-9), several organizations are partnering to host an event, part performance, part discussion, centered around ways we can help protect what is perhaps earth’s greatest, most vulnerable resource. The event, “Answering the Ocean’s Call: Stewardship of Our Ocean, Our Future,” will take place from 6-8pm on June 8 aboard the historic steamer LILAC, docked on the Hudson River at Pier 25 in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood. The LILAC is dedicated to conservation and education programs and will set the scene for a night of storytelling, as sailors, photographers, philosophers, entrepreneurs, poets, and policymakers come together to reflect on their love for and experiences with the ocean. The evening will also feature a performance from ecologist and musician David Rothenberg, best known for his musical performances with whales.
Our Humanity Matters, the Lilac Preservation Project, Hudson River Park, and The River Project partnered on this event, which is free and open to the public but requires advance registration.
