OCEAN CONFERENCE / 27 JUNE – 1 JULY 2022
“The Ocean is the planet’s largest ecosystem, regulating the climate and providing livelihoods for billions.
But its health is in danger. The second UN Ocean Conference, due to take place in June, will be an important opportunity to redress the damage that mankind continues to inflict on marine life and livelihoods,” reports UN News.
The UN has set the targets to be achieved over the decade including action to prevent and reduce pollution, acidification, protecting ecosystems, regulating fisheries and increasing scientific knowledge.
Youth and Innovation Forum will be conducted to participate in young entrepreneurs and innovators from 24 June to 26 June at Lisbon, Portugal, the largest coastal European Union member state.
“The Ocean provides oxygen, food and livelihood, stabilises the climate and act as a ‘giant sink for greenhouse gases. Nearly 680 million people live in low-lying coastal zones, rising to around one billion by 2050,” reports UN Data.
