Setting the Course for a Sustainable Blue Planet – EU International Ocean Governance Forum

On 14-16 December 2020 the European Commission and the European External Action Service invite stakeholders worldwide to discuss ocean challenges and to define action-oriented solutions towards global sustainability objectives

The second virtual International Ocean Governance Forum will take stock and discuss the contributions and proposals made during the first round of webinars and workshops of April and July 2020, and during the online consultation from July to October.

The first day consists of a high-level event, followed by two days of working groups. Forum recommendations cover priority areas such as climate change, biodiversity, blue economy and key drivers for transition including financing, rules and implementation, ocean knowledge and cross-sector cooperation.

Participants will discuss how to best transform these ambitions into actions for the European Commission and the External Action Service in 2021.
