Special Pre-Convocation Day 2021 Event: Water & Oceans: Restoring the Lifeblood of the Planet

Sign up for a New York Times Faculty/Student Pass and enjoy a pre-Convocation event on Thursday March 25, 2021 at 1:30 pm. This is a special New York Times online event titled Water & Oceans: Restoring the Lifeblood of the Planet.

Event Details from the New York Times:
Oceans are a crucial part of the biosphere, soaking up carbon dioxide, absorbing more than 90 percent of the excess heat trapped on Earth from carbon emissions and producing half of global oxygen. But as we continue to pump greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the strain is taking its toll. Action is imperative, but how do we unlock and accelerate ocean-oriented solutions without repeating the mistakes of the past? Join the New York Times event staff on March 25 for the debate.

Step One: If you have a New York Times online access pass, go right to the New York Times Registration for this event.

Step Two: if you do not have a NYT access pass, go to New York Times Digital Edition and get an access pass and then register for this event.
