The Ocean Conference

Monday 5 June 2017 - Friday 9 June 2017


The high-level United Nations Conference to Support the Implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development will be convened at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 5 to 9 June 2017, coinciding with World Oceans Day, to support the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14. 

The Conference aims to facilitate reversing the decline in the health of our ocean for people, planet and prosperity. It will be solutions-focused with engagement from all.

​PML scientists will have a presence at the Ocean Conference through a number of activities, including:
