Ocean Decade preparatory workshop for the North Atlantic region

07/01/2020 - 10/01/2020

This event will provide a forum to gather approximately 100 ocean leaders/champions/key stakeholders to further discuss and prioritize the issues identified at the First Global Planning Meeting. Plenary and working groups will facilitate regional, interdisciplinary discussions across sectors, such as ocean science and technology, ocean policy and sustainable development, business and industry, NGOs and civil society, and donors and foundations, to identify concrete deliverables and partnerships to meet the Decade’s six societal objectives.

The North Atlantic Workshop offers a crucial opportunity to co-design mission-oriented research strategies in line with the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Plan of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment and Coastal Areas in the North Atlantic, focusing on the needs and priorities of Northern Atlantic countries in terms of transforming knowledge systems, accelerating transfer of technology, enabling training and education, and fostering science-policy dialogues. EuroGOOS is represented at this workshop with Glenn Nolan, Secretary General, moderating the capacity building and technology transfer session.
