Global Ocean - Human Culture Initiative
- Global Ocean - Human Culture Initiative
The well-being of all life on earth depends on our planetary ocean. The ocean also plays a key role the health of our global economic framework. Yet, most citizens of the world do not appreciate the ocean’s interactive complexity, the diversity of its utility, and its underlying influence on past and present cultural change. The powerful roles the ocean plays in terms of human history, trade, commerce, resources, hazards, science, education, warfare, defense, the arts, entertainment and the modulation of our climate are largely unrecognized by most members of our global society.
This course will explore and expand on these and related themes with the goal of developing a broad awareness of the central, myriad, interconnected functions that the global ocean basin plays in our planetary society of nations and individuals. The next evolution of the course will produce an interactive ensemble of content modules allowing self-guided exploration of the content.
