Keeping the Momentum for Ocean Action Webinar Series

The 2020 United Nations Ocean Conference has been postponed, but the substantive preparations for the Conference continue. Keeping stakeholders mobilized to bring their contribution and commitment will be critical in the lead up to the event. In preparation to the Conference, UN DESA is organizing a “Keeping the Momentum for Ocean Action” webinar series to bring perspectives from stakeholders from different sectors and all regions of the world in support to SDG 14 implementation.

This series of sectorial webinars will connect, mobilize and bring new ideas from stakeholders towards the preparation and outreach of the UN Ocean Conference, including the compilation of new Commitments of Ocean Action and progress on previous commitments. Webinars are being planned to mobilize youth, local and regional governments, Asia-Pacific stakeholders and the private sector.
