Building a Bottom-Up, Global Network to Share Sustainable Practices in the Co-Design of Ocean Science?

By Dr Linwood Pendleton 

Building a bottom-up network that includes people from different cultures, sectors, disciplines, and time zones poses unique challenges.  How do you build trust among people who have never met? How do you get people to take the reins to lead the organization? How do you deal with different languages, ways of working, meeting cultures, and more?  This brief talk will introduce the Ocean Knowledge Action Network, a bottom-up and self-organising network of ocean scientists and non-science professionals, all working to better co-design ocean science for sustainable development.

Linwood is a seasoned conservation and environmental management professional with more than two decades of work in academia, federal government, not-for-profit global conservation, and tech. He currently leads the Ocean Knowledge Action Network – a global, bottom-up network of ocean professionals, research centres, and local and Indigenous communities all trying to co-design ocean science for better marine management.
