The World Maritime University is pleased to invite the international community to participate in a webinar on “The People We Need for the Ocean We Want – Launch of the Report 2021 for the Empowering Women for the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development Programme.” The online launch is scheduled for 8 July 2021 from 15.00-16.30 CEST. In collaboration with some of our key partners, it will raise awareness of the need for gender mainstreaming and the empowerment of women scientists across all actions under the Ocean Decade.
The webinar is a Satellite Activity of the First Ocean Decade Laboratory “An Inspiring and Engaging Ocean” that is taking place 7-8 July 2021. The Ocean Decade Laboratories are sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Germany in partnership with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO.
The Empowering Women for the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development Programme is generously funded by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) with additional support from The Nippon Foundation. The Programme is endorsed by IOC-UNESCO as a Decade Action and will play a central role in supporting the Ocean Decade mission to catalyze transformative ocean science solutions for sustainable development.
