Sea and Society Talks är en serie lunchseminarier som tar avstamp i FN:s hållbarhetsmål för 2030. Seminarierna länkar samman mål 14 som rör havet och dess resurser med något av de övriga 16 målen. Tanken är att kort presentera pågående forskning men också bjuda in till diskussion och debatt om hur vi på Göteborgs universitet och Chalmers kan bidra till att nå ett hållbart samhälle.

9 May: Sustainable management of lost fishing gear

Marine plastic pollution is a growing problem. Fishing gear like nets and ropes are among the most common plastic debris found in beach litter surveys. Abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded fishing gear may cause ghost fishing or other harm. How can it be managed?

In this Sea and Society Talk, Herman Andersson and Håkan Eggert from the Department of Economics will analyze various possible policy instruments to reduce marine pollution from both recreational and commercial fishing gear. They discuss the pros and cons of potential approaches like extended producer responsibility, deposit-refund systems and actively searching and pick up of abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded fishing gear.

Datum: 9 May
Tid: 11.50 - 13.00
Plats: Bioteket, Botanhuset. Carl Skottbergs gata 22B, Göteborg

In this Sea and Society Talk, archeologist Johan Ling and photographer Tyrone Martinsson presented their research project comparing these different maritime ranked societies, and what we can learn from traditional ecological knowledge.

 

Allison Perrigo: Biodiversity on land and in the seas

Earth s biodiversity inhabits everything from the deepest troughs in the sea, to the mountaintops of the Andes and Himalaya and even extends up into the atmosphere. But how do the UN's SDGs deal with biodiversity? Goal 14 (Life Under Water) and Goal 15 (Life on Land) explicitly address our need to understand and protect Earth's biodiversity in a framework that will allow this diversity to exist into the future.

Hear Allison Perrigo from the GGBC talk about this research, and how it all ties into the SDGs:
