The Global South Center Oceans Project activates a working group comprised of Pratt faculty, bridging the Global South Center with the Center for Materials and Science to bring interdisciplinary perspectives to one of the most vital problems facing the world today: the degradation of the world’s oceans. Helio Takai, Macarena Gomez-Barris, May Joseph, Carl Zimring, Francis Bradley, Cindie Kehlet, and Jennifer Telesca bring a plethora of dynamic perspectives to these problems with research that covers a range of issues from plastics in the oceans, ocean governance, maritime trade and human mobility, sustainable waste management, and exploitation of ocean resources.
