ECO Magazine, Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission Team Up

-

In the wake of the United Nations announcing a “Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030),ECO Magazine and the UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) have announced a partnership to support the initiative.

The collaboration will take the form of an editorial partnership to support the efforts of the UN drive, by increasing awareness and the reach of the initiative’s communication campaign.

Beginning in 2020, a new section dedicated to the decade will feature in ECO Magazine, and the magazine will also publish updates and further information through its social media and online communication channels.

According to Kira Coley, the senior editor at ECO Magazine:

“The UN’s Decade of Ocean Science will offer a unique framework for academia, governments and industry to join forces and create solutions for the issues we are witnessing today within our ocean and along our coasts. Over the next 10 years, media in all its forms will play a hugely important role in relaying information about timely opportunities that will enable action within the international ocean community. As an ocean-focused publication, we are honored to partner with UNESCO’s IOC and support the Decade in the coming years.”

The importance of the collaboration was further emphasized by Vladimir Ryabinin, the IOC executive secretary:

“Never before has there been such a dire need for the open flow of targeted information between research and academia, on the one hand, and government and society, on the other, to ensure that ocean knowledge is bringing new solutions and technology to address the major challenges of our time: climate change, the ocean’s declining health with its subsequent impact on human well-being and ability to sustain growing human population and blue economy. This is what the Ocean Decade will be about – transforming knowledge into solutions to concrete problems. And we need the media onboard playing an active role in scaling up this process.”
