ENGINEERS WITHOUT BORDERS WEEKLY MEETING – THURSDAY NOVEMBER 15TH, 6:30-7:30PM

Since the dawn of humanity, we have been drawn to the waters as a seemingly boundless source of potential and resources.

But how recent really is this state of declination? Many people all across the globe still rely on our waters for sustenance; how do we ensure these waters can continue to supply this demand? Join us Thursday to discuss “shifting baselines,” the current state of world fisheries, and the future of supplying a populace dependant on the spoils of the sea.
