2019 Ocean Sustainability Bergen Conference University of Bergen

From : Monday, October 21 2019
To : Tuesday, October 22 2019

The First Ocean Sustainability Bergen Conference will be at the University Aula of Bergen 21-22 October 2019 and is organized by IAU Member and IAU HESD Cluster Leader for SDG 14 (Life underwater) the University of Bergen, Norway.


The 2030 Agenda creates opportunities and options for juxtapositions and interconnections that are so far not fully utilized in public debates on the SDGs. At this first Ocean Sustainability Bergen Conference, we want to discuss inherent inconsistencies in the 2030 Agenda, in order to create a better platform for providing scientific advice towards creating a truly global system for conservation and sustainable use of the ocean. Over two days, the conference will address these challenges for scientifically informed ocean governance in general terms as well as with specific reference to the ongoing BBNJ negotiations.
