TH23I:
The Contributions of Early Career Ocean Professionals to the UN Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development

Session ID#: 100287

Session Description:
Early Career Professionals (ECPs) are regularly entrusted to perform highly demanding tasks in all sectors of society (e.g., academia, business, technology, policy, etc.). However, when it comes to international ocean sustainability and how to connect their specific actions to broader schemes, like the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (Decade), there is no training nor institution to facilitate the process.

 

In recognition of this need, the Decade’s executive planning group has created an Informal Working Group (IWG) to include the perspectives of ECPs into the planning phases and the implementation plan for the Decade. This townhall will provide an opportunity for OSM attendees to learn about the ways in which ECPs can contribute to the Decade and the specific actions that the IWG is engaging on. Through this process, we will seed discussions, provide space for feedback on the activities of the IWG, and most importantly, provide an opportunity for people to realize that there are concrete ways in which ECPs can contribute to international processes. All members attending OSM are encouraged to attend this event.
