Livestream of the Oliver Hazard Perry Tall Ship / Experiential Education Symposium

Update: The symposium is over but the live feed was great. I believe that this was thanks to the Media Pro International team. Huzzah for using technology like this to spread the word.  When and if there’s a recording of the event available, I’ll post it back here.

Thanks for tuning in today. This is an exciting project and I wish them good luck and great success.

Little Rhode Island is building a Tall Ship called Oliver Hazard Perry!

The sponsors are putting on an Educational Symposium today (March 12, 2010, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.) in theRhode Island Room at the URI U Club, University of Rhode Island. My friend and former colleague Captain Dave Wood is the moderator. He was the captain of the US Coast Guard Barque Eagle and one of the most respected tall ships experts in the world. Under his command, this program should be good.

They are planning to live stream the symposiom, so let’s give it a try.  Check back here at 1 p.m. and learn why tall ships are still important and how sail training can change young lives. And leave your thoughts and comments below.

  1. Media Pro indeed does the PR for this project; however; credit for the webcast goes to URI. It was indeed an incredible symposium, showing the incredible potential for the Oliver Hazard Perry as an educational ship. We’ll keep you posted on the progress!
