The Online Ocean Symposium is increasing and expanding attention to the Oceans by starting the conversation. Through the use of Google+ Hangouts on Air, the OOS creates an online video forum for conversations in ocean advocacy, photography, etc and forges connections in the ocean community. Together we can turn the conversation into tangible action!
