Kirsten Dawson (IS Parent F04, F06, F08), is part of a newly formed organization, Women Working for Oceans or W20. The organization was started by a group of women near the Boston area who are concerned about the health of the planet’s oceans and want to do something about it. The mission of W2O is to inform individuals about the challenges facing oceans and inspire action to ensure a healthy, sustainable blue planet for tomorrow. W20 works in partnership with the New England Aquarium, a global leader in marine education and conservation.
Having had several successful events last spring and fall, W2O is gearing up for speaker Dianna Cohen of the Plastics Pollution Coalition to address the serious problem of plastics polluting the oceans. Please see the below Save the Date to their April 10th event. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!
