Maritime Academy Climate Symposium
The Maritime Academy Climate Symposium emerged out of student interest and is designed to spark discourse on our campus and across other maritime academies. The symposium will feature short talks by experts followed by a panel discussion on the ways in which climate change will impact national security and future workforce opportunities in the maritime industry. The goals of this event include providing knowledge on the ways in which climate change will impact future job prospects and infrastructure, inspiring hope in climate change resilience, and shedding light on opportunities for growth.

接待Location: Wyman House
Maine Maritime Academy’s Environmental Action Club encourages you to join us for a student-led conversation on March 29th, following the Climate Symposium. This debrief will provide an opportunity for students across the maritime academies to have a meaningful discussion and share their perspectives on the numerous facets of society affected by climate change. This discussion will allow students from the maritime academies to connect and create a platform for continuing climate conversation. We hope that attending the debrief will be a fantastic opportunity for students at all maritime academies to discuss how they can lead future climate conversations in planning for upcoming careers at sea.
The meeting will be held at 8:00 pm (EST).
MMA students can either join in-person at the library or virtually.
