Three Saint Mary’s University faculty members provided their expertise at the G7 Oceans Summit at the Halifax Convention Centre this academic year. The event was held in conjunction with the G7 Joint Ministerial Session on Healthy Oceans, Seas and Resilient Communities. The summit, and the G7 meeting, generally focused on oceans, while the themes of the gathering were plastic reduction, sustainable fishing, and coastal resilience. Professors Dr. Danika van Proosdij, Dr. Cathy Conrad, and Dr. Tony Charles represented the University, working with 200 other global experts to develop the framing and guiding document on oceans for the G7 ministers meeting that followed.
