Registration for the second Ocean Decade Laboratory sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in partnership with UNESCO to be held online later this month is now open.
The September 15-17, 2021 “Predicted Ocean” laboratory will feature speakers who will “discuss how to better understand the ocean and how to share this knowledge with each other and with the public.”
The laboratory will be diverse and open to anyone. It will begin with the Core Event – a four-hour, high-level introductory session from leading experts – on topics such as “Benefits, Societal Need, and Ambitions” or “From Observation to Prediction.”
The Core Event will be followed by more than 30 “Satellite Activities” across the globe, hosted by scientists and governments but also by schools or local initiatives. It’s a unique opportunity for networking and for participants to familiarize themselves with ocean science from all over the world. For example: The Barcelona Super Computing Center is hosting an event titled “Understanding and Beat Marine Pollution,” while students from the Cape Verde Ocean Decade Committee are presenting the outcomes of a “hackathon” to promote the interaction of ocean-related professionals, entrepreneurs from the private sector, and political decision-makers.
You can register for the event here.
By understanding the ever-changing conditions, we will get to "A Predicted Ocean" and sustain a healthy ecosystem. Register and learn more about the next UN Ocean Decade Laboratories event – A Predicted Ocean, 15 – 17 September. https://t.co/deVJDlOTJ0 pic.twitter.com/ADKISxd9wW
