Background and Objectives
ECCWO5 will host events on a diverse and exciting range of topics and disciplines within and across the natural and social sciences that can potentially contribute to; the Seventh Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (AR7), the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, implementation of actions identified in the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework,
the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the goals and climate negotiations in COP27.
We welcome you to be part of this exciting opportunity and to help lead these discussions. Your input will be critical to the success of this important forum and we invite you to contribute to the development of the program.
We are now seeking expressions of interest to convene theme sessions, workshops and other events. We encourage innovative thinking and alternatives to the normal conference formats, as well as diverse participation from all disciplines and sectors. We especially welcome proposals from early-career ocean professionals.
Please check the Key Topic areas and submit your proposal.
