Boticario Group Foundation promotes the 1st Conexão Oceano (Ocean connection) of the year, with the theme “coastal-marine legislation and policy”. The online event seeks to increase awareness of the importance of the ocean and its relationship with transversal and essential themes for life on the planet. The initiative is a partnership with IOC-UNESCO and is part of the week's program organized by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovations (MCTI) within the scope of the Ocean Decade Committee, and formalizes the launch of the Ocean Decade in Brazil

Conexão Oceano (Ocean Connection) is a movement that has brought society closer to the Ocean since 2019, demonstrating its relationship with the most diverse themes, such as health, sport and economy. This year, we will promote online events (in addition to other strategies), and the first one will bring up the theme of coastal marine legislation and Policy. 

 The event will be attended by representatives from academia, the third sector, civil society and public authorities. In addition, it will count on the mediation of journalist José Raimundo, winner of the Vladimir Herzog Award and author of several reports on environmental issues broadcast on TV Globo. 

The event will also bring inputs for journalists interested in participating in the call Ocean Connection, which will support and promote the production of qualified journalistic material and thus raise awareness and engage communicators and the society in favor of the Ocean, within the scope of Ocean Decade. The purpose of this call is to support the production of a report or series of reports for print media, television, radio or internet, on topics that address marine legislation and policy.
