Maritime & Naval Roles in Charting the Course towards a Sustainable Rhode Island Blue Economy Future

Rhode Island makes significant contributions to the blue economy locally, nationally, and globally. In fact, about 6- 9% of Rhode Islanders work within the state’s ocean economy, a sector with a direct impact of more than $5 billion. Growing our blue economy sustainably will require all sectors, including but not limited to academic, maritime and naval communities. This presentation will summarize a recent blue economy report, and propose strategies and actions which the academic, maritime and naval communities could take towards contributing to a sustainable blue economy.
