Join us for a panel discussion to learn about the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 and how you can get involved in this once-in-a-lifetime initiative. Panelists will provide an overview of the Decade as well as how different sectors - including NGOs, business/industry, government, and early career ocean professionals - can contribute to the Decade, both in the US and internationally. Following the panel, we will have breakout rooms for discussion and Q&A with the audience.
