SDG 14: Life Below Water

This article is part of: Virtual Ocean Dialogues

The World Economic Forum and Friends of Ocean Action are hosting a global online conference for ocean action, the Virtual Ocean Dialogues, on 1-5 June 2020. The Virtual Ocean Dialogues will connect communities across the world that are seeking innovation and taking bold action for a healthy, resilient, thriving ocean.

The event will convene leaders and communities online 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.

“During these difficult times, the Virtual Ocean Dialogues are being created in order to maintain positive momentum in global efforts to better protect and manage the resources of the ocean. Now more than ever, humanity needs a healthy, thriving ocean to protect our communities and build resilience against future crises."

Ambassador Peter Thomson, United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Ocean, and Co-Chair of Friends of Ocean Action.
