Great Decisions: High Seas Treaty with Elizabeth Wheat, PhD

March 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Manitowoc Public Library

Balkansky Community Room ABC

Monday, March 25, 2024, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Great Decisions, a project of the Foreign Policy Association, is a grassroots world affairs education program which brings together Americans from across the nation to discover and discuss foreign policy issues. Over the course of eight weeks, scholars will introduce each issue, and participants may explore their own views and those of the group.

High Seas Treaty: Areas of the seas beyond national jurisdiction comprise the high seas, which are facing a degradation of ecosystems due to climate change and the increase in human activities, such as shipping, overfishing, pollution, and deep-sea mining. The recently negotiated High Seas Treaty, also known as the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction treaty, will attempt to address these issues. How difficult will it be to convince nations to participate?
