See you in Lisbon (Portugal) on June 27th to July 1st 2022
The Oceans Conference opens a new chapter in global action for the oceans.
Jointly organised by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, it aims to use science and innovation to deliver the solutions needed to achieve the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, including the goal of sustainable ocean protection.
Scientific knowledge is unanimous: human activities are posing unprecedented threats to the ocean. Its health and ability to sustain life will only worsen as the world’s population increases and human activities expand.
The devastating effects of climate change, food insecurity, disease and pandemics, biodiversity loss, economic inequality and geopolitical conflict are already visible and compel us to act now to protect the state of our ocean.
