The award-winning filmmakers at Green Fire Productions highlight Rhode Island’s work as a top example of ocean planning in the United States and bring you face-to-face with those now embarking on the nation’s first multi-state ocean plan.
Off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate are now testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive.
