Urban Bay: Eyes Wide Open Under Rio de Janeiro’s Ocean

In alignment with the United Nations Ocean Conference in June in New York City, the Columbia Global Centers I Rio de Janeiro, the UNDP World Centre for Sustainable Development, the RIO+ Centre and the School of Engineering and Applied Science of Columbia University will host the world premiere of URBAN BAY, a documentary by Ricardo Gomes.

The film highlights marine life closest to urban coastal areas.
