Divided Waters: Can Offshore Wind And Fishing Co-Exist In The Age of Climate Change? | 6:00 – 7:30 PM (Assembly)

Rhode Island has the first five offshore wind turbines in the country, but hundreds more are planned for Southern New England, including several dozen that will provide electricity to the Ocean State.

Rhode Island is also home to a vibrant fishing industry, and fishermen are already coping with local waters that are warming as fast as anywhere on earth. Windmills will help slow climate change, but what will they do to our fisheries? Can trawlers and turbines co-exist?

Join ‘Possibly’ and The Public’s Radio for a live panel discussion about the complicated relationship between Rhode Island’s newest and oldest industries.

Space is limited for this free talk and a separate additional RSVP is required.

Beat the line! If this is your first time attending a Venture Café Providence event, you will need to create a Venture Café account. The best option is to create this account BEFORE you arrive to save precious time for making connections, hearing great talks, taking pictures, posting ideas, and noshing on some local eats.
