In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the format of the International Ocean Governance (IOG) Forum, originally scheduled for 22-24 April in Brussels has been changed.
Ocean governance cannot wait for viruses to stop from spreading. Thus and to do justice to the importance of the subject, the meeting has not been canceled or postponed but partially moved to a digital format.
Therefore, the IOG-Forum Thematic Working Groups (TWGs) will be launched via online webinars between 22-24 April, according to the following schedule:
- TWG 1 – “Improving the international ocean governance framework”, will meet on April 22, 2020, 14:00-16:00 CEST.
- TWG 2 – “Reducing pressure on oceans and seas and creating the conditions for a sustainable ‘blue’ economy”, will meet on April 23, 2020, 14:00-16:00 CEST.
- TWG 3 – “Strengthening the ocean knowledge system”, will meet on April 24, 2020, 14:00-16:00 CEST.
