Thank you to all who attended and thank you to Peter Neill for the talk on Saturday, November 13, at 3PM, at the library. Peter is the founder and director of the World Ocean Observatory, host of World Ocean Radio, and a book author. His newest book is called “Aqua terra: reflections on the world ocean”.

The presentation is called: “To Change the Way to See the World”

It will feature a series of 35 visualizations in Power Point format that served as a presentation structure for the evolution of how we perceive the world, then, now, and into the future,  a bit of a lecture, but from concept to concept focusing on projections and other graphic illustrations of where we are and where we might be going as a paradigm for the future: in essence, hydraulic society.

Peter is founder and director of the World Ocean Observatory and serves as host of World Ocean Radio, a weekly podcast about the health of the ocean. In 2016 he received an appointment with the Climate Change Institute and represents the W2O as a Research Associate; he previously served 20 years as President of the South Street Seaport Museum, New York; is co-founder of The Sound School and The Harbor School; and has dedicated his career to marine affairs. His most recent book, The Once and Future Ocean: Notes Toward a New Hydraulic Society, is available wherever books are sold. He lives in downeast Maine with his partner Mary.
