In March, we hosted our first #3pChat Tweet Jam on sustainable fashion, featuring prominent sustainable designers and merchandisers from around the world.

Now, on Thursday, May 8th; 12 Noon PST / 3pm EST, we’re bringing you our second large “Tweet Jam” on sustainable seafood. We have been running a special sponsored series on the topic for the past several weeks, and now it’s time to invite a few experts in for a live conversation, in which you can participate!

Questions of discussion will include:

  • The future of “wild” fish, and aquaculture as a solution?
  • The efficiency of labeling and consumer responses?
  • Do diners care? Can the restaurant industry play a part?
  • What is the role of businesses? NGOs? Government?

OUR PANELISTS: 

  • Tim Fitzgerald – Environmental Defense Fund Oceans Program, Senior Advisor – @hawaiifitz
  • Jason Simas – iPura Foods, Director of Communications – @iPura
  • Clare Leschin-Hoar – Independent Food Writer / Journalist – @c_leschin
  • George H. Leonard – Chief Scientist, Ocean Conservancy – @GeorgeHLeonard

Thursday, May 8th; 12 Noon PST / 3pm EST
