Let’s strengthen Ocean governance! How to engage citizens, stakeholders and scientists in maritime affairs
Countries, businesses and society are giving increasing attention to the economic, social and environmental dimensions of ocean matters, including in relation to climate change. The sustainable management of the ocean raises many issues, including in terms of ocean governance - an area where the European Union (EU) with a well-developed marine & maritime policy framework is playing a leading role.
Effective ocean governance requires that adequate knowledge is produced, shared and used, and that the research and innovation agenda become responsive to the society needs, thus contributing to the sustainable management of the ocean. In particular, Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and effective Ocean Literacy (OL) are seen as essential to effective ocean governance, ensuring the sea matters to all.
This event is last step of the Ocean Dialogues, the objectives of Policy Workshop is to discuss how policy can support the application of key principles that underlie Responsible Research & Innovation and effective Ocean Literacy.
We kindly inform you that we have now reached the full capacity of the room and therefore had to close the registration. Presentations of the speakers will be available here the day after the meeting.
