Can chefs make delicious creations from something that can help save our oceans? 

Join current student Carlos-Henri Ferré as he speaks about his summer 2018 Center for the Blue Economy Honorary Fellow experience working for a film and television production company, specifically helping to produce an episode on kelp (the farm, the chefs, and the experts he helped interviewed). He will talk about kelp’s potential and where the producers hope the kelp industry and the series will go. He will also discuss environmental communication and methods for becoming more effective storytellers. The talk will end with a brief screening of the episode.
