The second 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.

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.
