Ocean Practices: OBPS Workshop VII, 09-13 Oct-2023 [free, online]   REGISTRATION AND AGENDA AVAILABLE NOW

Ocean Practices FOCUS SESSIONS 16-20 Oct 2023 : in the week following the Workshop, we are facilitating Focus Sessions organized separately by interested groups.            

Contact: info@oceanbestpractices if you are interested  in contributing a PRESENTATION or, in the week following the workshop, organizing, a FOCUS SESSION 

The 2023 workshop will explore the Ocean Best Practices aimed at providing some “common” solutions to the 10 selected challenges set by the UN Ocean Decade for collective impact.

The online workshop will be divided into two sessions per day (each day about 3-4 hours in total with breaks), covering an introductory session on the new developments of the proposed OceanPractices Federated Network and Session tracks addressing the Challenges listed, with plenty of time for discussion and Q & A. Each session should address such questions as: “What kind of Ocean BP should be developed for major topics (e.g. climate change, energy, environment)?“, “Where are the gaps in BP in your discipline?”;  “Are BP transversal, i.e., not silo-like?” or “Beyond BP, what do we do?“.
