Change the world

The work of the SARChI Research Chair in Ocean Cultures and Heritage, headed up by Professor Rose Boswell, resonates with the initiatives supported in the United Nations’ Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. Initiatives will seek to contribute to the sustainability of the ocean and also in building partnerships with all stakeholders involved. The uniqueness in the Chair’s work is its focus on the influence of humans on ocean sustainability and oceans management, bringing an often-disregarded approach in oceans research.
