The sixth Mangrove Macrobenthos and Management conference (MMM6): “Mangrove Ecosystems for Human Well-being in a Changing Planet” is bringing together stakeholders from different sectors of society from many countries across the five continents in a single forum to present and discuss research advances and proposals for the conservation and management of mangrove forests, as well as to advocate for mangroves as Nature-based Solutions to climate change.

MMM6 is the first conference of the series to be held in Latin America and the Caribbean, a neotropical region where mangroves have evolved among some of the most biodiverse tropical forests in the world. In particular, mangroves in Colombia are found in both the Caribbean and the Tropical Eastern Pacific Marine Ecoregions.

This course will have an experiential dynamic, developed through active learning activities that allow the expression of personal reflections and common commitments which can be applied in both public and private organizations, and which can serve as an impetus for the creation of new initiatives in academia, the private sector, government and communities.

Join our unique course located in the stunning environment of the Ciénaga Grande de Santa Marta, and gain valuable insights into DECARBONIZATION and SUSTAINABILITY and how to provide consulting support to organizations in these areas. You’ll learn how to align your goals with global sustainability efforts while discovering BLUE CARBON – the carbon storage process found in coastal soils, including seagrasses, salt marshes, and mangroves.

The course explores mangrove ecosystems, their potential for decarbonization, coastal protection and their rich biodiversity, as well as other ecosystem services and their relevance for communities, along with the emerging concept of the BLUE ECONOMY.
