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.
The IOG-Forum Thematic Working Groups (TWGs) were launched via online webinars between 22-24 April. 435 ocean actors, stakeholders and experts joined the webinars from their desks from around the world – demonstrating our shared commitment to ocean governance despite the COVID-19 pandemic. THANK YOU!
Please also note in your calendars the next IOG-Forum meeting on 14-16 December (new date!!) in Brussels, including a high-level plenary and meetings of the Thematic Working Groups (TWGs).
