ICYMARE 2021 BERLIN is now an endorsed UN Ocean Decade Activity

ICYMARE 2021 BERLIN successfully applied for endorsement as a transformative Decade Action that contributes to the Ocean Decade vision of ‘the science we need for the ocean we want’. ICYMARE thus becomes a part of a multitude of activities that are facilitating international cooperation to promote science and technology as a response to the ocean needs of society:

  • A clean ocean where sources of pollution are identified and removed
  • A healthy and resilient ocean where marine ecosystems are mapped and protected
  • A predictable ocean where society has the capacity to understand current and future ocean conditions
  • A safe ocean where people are protected from ocean hazards
  • A sustainably harvested ocean ensuring the provision of food supply
  • A transparent ocean with open access to data, information and technologies
  • An inspiring and engaging ocean where society understands and values the ocean
