The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) will harness and stimulate innovative ocean research, from co-design to co-delivery, and strengthen the multi-stakeholder cooperation needed to develop the science we need for the ocean we want.
The Decade will provide a common framework for collaborative and participative ocean research, and support better integration of diverse knowledge systems from different science disciplines and ocean communities.
This virtual session “Co-designing the science we need for the Ocean Decade” is convened by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO in partnership with the International Science Council, as part of the Ocean Decade Virtual Series.
It will explore opportunities and challenges, and discuss best practices to deliver co-designed, solution-oriented research that will lead to transformative Decade Actions with long-lasting benefits to the ocean and society.
The session will be organised in two parts:
- Part 1 – What is co-designed, solution-oriented research in the context of the Ocean Decade?
- Part 2 – How can we foster co-design,co-production and co-delivery in ocean research during the Ocean Decade?
This session will be followed by a series of regional sessions in October and November 2020 that will facilitate the discussion of regional priorities and needs for co-designed ocean science. By registering for this session you will also receive information on these upcoming regional sessions.
