Inaugural BlueMind Summit

(Dr.Wallace J. Nicols graces the cover of OUTSIDE magazine Breakthrough Science 2016 issue: This is Your Brain on Nature.)

From NextNower Manuel Maqueda of Trash Island and Plastic Pollution Coalition, and whose organization BlooSee is a sponsor of the BlueMind Summit:

How does the ocean affect our brain?

Why does the sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste of the ocean set our souls at ease?

How does our “brain on ocean” behave?

These questions and much more are the subject of the BlueMind Summit, an unprecedented gathering that will bring together neuroscientists, ocean scientists, experts in technology forecasting, photographers, explorers, yogis, writers, artists, ocean advocates…

It will take place June 2, 2011 at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco

The BlueMind Summit is the brainchild of Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, a noted sea turtle biologist, an ocean advocate, and a Research Associate at the California Academy of Sciences.

You can watch the BlueMind Summit live June 2, 2011, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm PST (GMT-8) at
