Into the Blue: The State of Our Oceans and the Role of the U.N.

  • Riggs Library 3700 O St NW Washington, DC, 20057 United States (map)

Come join the UN Sustainable Oceans Alliance, IRC, and UNA-Georgetown at a lively discussion with the Ambassador of Palau, Stuart Beck. Not only does Ambassador Beck serve as the Palauan representative to the UN for Oceans and Seas and the chair of the Sustainable Oceans Alliance, but he also negotiated the terms of Palau's independence. The talk will focus on Palau's experience in marine conservation, the role of the UN and the international community, and how students and cross-sector collaboration can help achieve sustainability.

Light refreshments will be served at the reception after the event, where you can mingle with distinguished guests and dignitaries. For further questions, please contact Daniela Fernandez at
