The All-Atlantic Ocean Research Forum will offer an opportunity to network and join leading political and ocean leaders, including youth, researchers, entrepreneurs, academics, civil society and many more inspirational speakers. The Forum will define the new strategic direction and political ambitions for the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, which was launched with the signings of the European Union – United States – Canada Galway Statement in 2013, and the European Union – Brazil – South Africa Belém Statement in 2017. The Forum will define how the Alliance will deliver on the European Green Deal, the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, the Horizon Europe Mission Healthy Oceans, Seas, Coastal and Inland Waters. The Forum is part of the international dimension of the updated EU Atlantic Maritime Strategy and will also be the occasion to launch the All-Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassadors Forum.

Prior to the forum a workshop will discuss the topic of ‘Improving the knowledge of our oceans and seas and bringing them closer to citizens’, with EuroSea coordinator Toste Tanhua joining as session moderator.
