International Ocean Governance Forum- Thematic Working Group webinars - April 22-24, 2020

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to change the format of the International Ocean Governance (IOG) Forum, originally scheduled for 22-24 April in Brussels. Ocean governance cannot wait for viruses to stop from spreading. To do justice to the importance of the subject, we didn’t cancel or postpone the meeting but partially moved to a digital format. 

Start date: 22/04/2020 - 14:00
