Conference „Ocean Governance for Sustainability“, March 6 – 8, 2017 in Bremen
From 1. March 2017
In March 2017, the first content-focused conference of the EU Cost Action ‘Ocean Governance for Sustainability’ will take place in Bremen.
Organized by the OceanGov-Network and hosted by the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) the conference will take place at ZMT and Bremen’s Haus der Wissenschaft from March 6 to 8, 2017.
It will serve as the first content-focused event of the Ocean Governance Network with the aim to jointly conceptualize each working group, setting the scene for the thematic and content-focused work of the following 3.5 years.
Besides the six panels focusing on the core themes of the six working groups of the network, there will be a conceptual panel on the further developments of existing (and terrestrially based) governance theories based on empirical governance discussions from the marine realm, a science-policy panel discussion with representatives from policy-making and civil society, as well as an early-career and family-work-balance round table.
There are six synergistic-driven working groups around these main thematic areas:
1. Land-Sea Interactions
2. Area-Based Management
3. Seabed Resource Management
4. Nutrition Security and Food Systems
5. Ocean, Climate Change, and Acidification
6. Fisheries Governance
