Sea Grant Develops Discussion Guide for New Documentary Film

The National Sea Grant Law Center has created a discussion guide for the documentary film “Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship”. The guide was produced for Green Fire Productions to help professors incorporate “Ocean Frontiers” into the classroom.

The film features reporting from places across the country that are implementing promising new approaches to ocean and coastal management. It helps audiences understand key principles of ecosystem-based management and coastal and marine spatial planning through its featured stories and people.

The guide was developed with the help of the Ocean and Coastal Law Committee of Vermont Law School’s Environmental Law Society.
