The Session
The ocean is our livelihood and the largest ecosystem on Earth. At the same time, it is under stress. With the triad "Ten years, ten challenges, one ocean", the United Nations has proclaimed the Ocean Decade (2021 - 2030). As part of this, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO are inviting global dialogue between science, society, business and politics with the virtual event series "Creating the Ocean We Want". In the session, experts from marine research and science communication will discuss the following key questions: How does knowledge about the ocean reach society? And which actors does the Ocean Decade need to have the greatest possible global impact?
