The next decade will be pivotal for the health of the ocean, which is facing unprecedented human and environmental stressors. Science-informed policy responses will be at the forefront of creating an ocean which is both healthy and meets the needs of humanity sustainably.
The Royal Society is launching the new Ocean Science Policy Programme to support the science and policy needed to meet the goals of the UN’s Ocean Decade. The programme seeks to bring early career researchers, ocean professionals, and policy makers together to identify the critical knowledge to help create a sustainably managed, healthy ocean.
On the day, you will have the opportunity to engage with ocean thought-leaders, network with researchers and policy professionals from a range of marine-related disciplines, and put your mind to some of the pressing interdisciplinary challenges facing our seas.
Attending this event
The event is open to all policy makers, early career researchers and early career ocean professionals working in the field of marine science or policy.
If you would like to participate in-person on the day, please email the Resilient Futures Team noting your current occupation/institution and area of focus, as well as any dietary requirements. Please be aware that space on the day will be limited and advanced registration is essential.
