Join UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission for the presentation events of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development in Italy!

This special event will raise awareness about the marvels and threats of the ocean, highlight solutions and promote the pivotal role of science and the importance of a healthy ocean for the future of our planet.

The event is composed by three different sections:

-The Oceanthon, a hackathon in collaboration with Italian Universities and startups to find innovative solutions to ocean issues such as Sea level rise & cultural heritage, Issues and opportunities for sustainable coastal tourism and Healthy food & Healthy sea ;

-The #generazioneoceano event that will introduce the three main thematic areas of the decade - climate change, food security and ocean and human health - in an innovative and engaging way ;

-The matching&networking evening event that will provide a platform to make connections in order to join efforts, collect commitments of entrepreneurs, brands and individuals and celebrate the ocean with art performances.

With these events we will start building and uniting the #GenerationOcean in Italy by involving different stakeholders to commit to ocean conservation, to give voice to ocean marvels, issues and solutions and to act in order to make the difference individually and as a community.
