Establishing a national German Decade Committee

A German Decade Committee was established to coordinate the implementation of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development in Germany. After a corresponding call for self-nominations to all partners relevant for the decade, the members of the committee were picked by a selection committee at the end of September. Dr Simon Jungblut, in his function as ICYMARE Organizer, was selected as one of the NGO members of the committee. A first meeting took place on Friday, 23 October 2020.

The task of the committee will be to advance the practical implementation of the decade in Germany. It will involve all relevant stakeholders as best as possible and maintain a close exchange with the office of the German Marine Research Consortium KDM. More information about this committee and its work plans will be posted in the coming weeks.
