The World Economic Forum and Friends of Ocean Action organize a global online conference for ocean action, the Virtual dialogues on the ocean, June 1-5, 2020. The Virtual Ocean Dialogues will connect communities around the world who seek innovation and take bold action for a healthy, resilient and prosperous ocean.
The event will bring together leaders and online communities from across the global ocean space. Designed in collaboration with a range of other partners, the Virtual Ocean Dialogues will maintain momentum in the face of COVID-19 to continue working for ambitious and urgent global action for a healthy ocean.
“In these difficult times, Virtual Ocean Dialogues are created to maintain positive momentum in global efforts to better protect and manage ocean resources. Now more than ever, humanity needs a healthy and prosperous ocean to protect our communities and strengthen their resilience in the face of future crises. “
