what we do

We create communication and learning opportunities that facilitate dialogue and discussion between local stakeholders and scientific/academic communities working toward Blue Economy success.

serving our clients

Our education and training services support individuals, organizations, and institutions who share our desire to build communities dedicated to environmental sustainability and making positive social impact.

with a unique method

We offer our unique GEONarrative approach (using maps, geospatial displays, videos, graphics, images, illustrations, diagrams, dis-
play elements) for solving non-linear, complex problems related to human-env-
ironment interaction and water-food-community-economy connections.

yielding great results

Our tailored method is designed to expand understanding and analysis of complex prob-
lems to foster better, more effective decision-making at the local, national, and global levels.

Technical, scientific solutions are not answers unless they resonate with the humans involved.

Respecting, understanding, and learning from local history/culture combined with scientific innovation, can lead to tailored strategies for solving complex problems associated with the environment and the economy.

Community stakeholders

Small businesses and cooperatives

Academic institutions


Local, state, or federal gov. agencies
