In the last few decades, science has revealed the widespread deterioration of the marine environment and its resources, something long witnessed by coastal populations.
In response, we must focus on nurturing our collective capacity to tackle these challenges and mitigate their impact. We need immediate and forward-looking actions that protect the marine environment.
In line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we must invest in solutions: ambitious political actions that mobilise change-makers from government, business and civil society to turn good ideas into reality.
The Our Ocean Conference is all about driving these commitments. Commitments that will reduce marine pollution, manage aquatic resources sustainably, mitigate climate change, and set up marine sanctuaries.
