ABOUT The Blue & You Summer Speaker Series:
Rhode Island has always had a strong connection to the ocean and the industries surrounding it like tourism & recreation, marine trades, and fisheries. For a third year in a row, The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce will offer a Summer Speaker Series called “The Blue & You: Understanding Our Blue Economy.”
The Blue & You Series is designed to provide information that will help citizens understand what the blue economy is and how it impacts them. From real people who make their living on the water, to creative problem solving around complex issues, the Blue & You sessions will inform and inspire.
The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce is grateful to REGENT Craft Inc, Anduril Industries, and Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Company for sponsoring the 11-session Speaker Series, and to Grow Blue and Clean Ocean Access for supporting the series.
Start your day off with coffee and conversation around interesting topics that impact all of us.
