Joint Event – Saving & Using the Ocean: What should the new UN agreement say?

This event has passed

Panel Discussion

The ocean matters to all of us. 2020 sees the last stages of negotiation of a new United Nations agreement relating to our use of the high sea and deep ocean. The agreement’s objective is to deliver a fair and balanced approach to conservation and sustainability, taking into account the perspective of countries at different levels of development, science and the health benefits arising from use of marine genetic resources.

Join us at the Wolfson Lecture Theatre to hear from our panel of diplomats, environmental activists and industry experts as they put forward their views on the negotiations. The floor will then be open to questions and you will have the opportunity to challenge those involved and influence this very important process.

The event closes with the launch of ‘Song of the Oceans’, specially composed by Paul Mealor and Grahame Davies to raise public awareness of these significant negotiations.

The discussion will be followed by a reception.
