SEARSPORT — Peter Neill, director of the World Ocean Observatory, will present “The Sea Connects All Things,” an illustrated talk on the ocean as an integrated global social system at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, at Penobscot Marine Museum, 40 East Main St. Neill will suggest actions, beyond the predictable conventions, for organizations and individuals to adopt as innovative strategies for the future.

Neill has appeared on television documentaries on PBS, A&E, Discovery and National Geographic Society productions.

The World Ocean Observatory advocates for the ocean through independent, responsible, apolitical science, and is dedicated to advancing public understanding of ocean issues through institutional collaboration and partnerships,  pro-active programs, and connection with individual subscribers around the world. It was founded in 2004 as a recommendation of the 1998 Independent World Commission on the Future of the Oceans. Peter Neill also has served as president of the South Street Seaport Museum, New York, and as director for Maritime Preservation for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. He is a trustee of Penobscot Marine Museum.
