In coordination with the United Nations Ocean's Conference - June 5-9 in New York City - the Columbia Global Centers I Rio de Janeiro, Columbia Engineering‎ and Rio+ UNDP World Centre for Sustainable Development will host the world premiere of URBAN BAY, a documentary by Ricardo Gomes.

The film highlights the marine life that live closest to urban coastal areas. By demonstrating that life still exists in the waters closest to cities, this documentary brings a renewed motivation and inspiration to the proper management and conservation of oceans – which is also the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 14: “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development.”
