At WWF's Fuller Symposium, Alasdair Harris (@aarhh) of Blue Ventures (@blueventures) talk "Catalysing coastal conservation: Making local marine management make sense" discusses the Locally-Managed Marine Area (LMMA) revolution in the western Indian Ocean, and why community involvement is crucial to coastal management.

WWF's Fuller Symposium convenes thought leaders in science, policy, business, conservation and development to tackle emerging issues facing our planet and advance science-based approaches to protect the future of nature. The 2013 Symposium explored how local and indigenous communities can empower themselves by managing their own natural resources—and in turn become a global force for conservation

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
