The tides are changing!
We are excited to announce The Ocean Symposium 2023, a multi-stakeholder event that aims to address critical issues such as ocean pollution, ocean acidification, underwater ecosystem restoration, ocean technology, climate change, sustainability, international and local projects, networking, and thought-provoking discussions led by expert speakers and panellists. Join us as we showcase impactful short ocean films, sparking inspiration and action towards a healthier and more sustainable future for our oceans and the planet.

The Ocean Symposium 2023 will offer great opportunities for networking with the marine community.
During this event we will have updates about the UN End of Plastic Pollution Treaty and a direct Zoom link with the Intergovernmental Negotiating Commission, sparking a discussion and a possible written Statement by The Ocean Symposium on the subject.
The in-person attendees will be joined by a select online global audience from different parts of the world, attending through Zoom.
