    The central goals of the symposium are to share experiences across disciplines and to identify key next steps and common elements and approaches that promote resilience of marine social-ecological systems in the face of global changes. This involves:

    1. exploring conceptual issues relating to social-ecological responses in marine systems to global changes;
    2. analysing case studies of specific examples of social-ecological responses in marine systems to significant environmental changes manifested locally;
    3. synthesising the work of natural and social scientists and building comparisons of social-ecological responses in marine ecosystems subjected to major environmental variability;
    4. developing innovative approaches to the use of science and knowledge in management, policy and advice;
    5. identifying lessons for governance for building resilient social-ecological systems.
