North-South Dialogue for a Sustainable Ocean
North-South Dialogue for a Sustainable Ocean
Our well-being depends on a healthy ocean. It always has. It always will. Pressures on the ocean are intense and growing – but we know recovery is possible. Crucially, a healthy ocean holds the solutions to many of the world’s challenges. And cooperation between countries of the Global North and the Global South is key — after all, we share one ocean.

In response, the leaders of 14 countries (Australia, Canada, Chile, Fiji, Ghana, Indonesia, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, Namibia, Norway, Palau and Portugal) recently announced a new ocean action agenda for sustainably managing 100% of national waters. See here: https://oceanpanel.org/action

Join us for this unique North-South dialogue to learn more about this ocean action agenda from the contrasting perspectives of the Global North and the Global South. Our distinguished panel includes:

- Kwasi Appeaning Addo, Director of the Institute for Environment and Sanitation Studies, University of Ghana
- Olanike Adeyemo, Professor of Aquatic Epidemiology and Toxicology and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, University of Ibadan, Nigeria
- Robert Blasiak, Researcher, Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University
- Rashid Sumaila, Director of the Fisheries Economics Research Unit, University of British Columbia, Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries, Canada

You will learn about 5 key transformations needed for a sustainable ocean, and 5 key building blocks that will enable them. You will also be invited to participate by submitting your questions and answering polls to shape the conversation.

The ocean has a story to tell. And it’s different than you might think. Join us to help create the story of our ocean’s future.
