In 2017, the United Nations (UN) declared 2021 until 2030 as the "Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development", or popularly called "Ocean Decade".
With the arrival of 2021, we entered this decade full of expectations and well aware of the urgency to protect our oceans and their biodiversity. Be sure to visit the site: The Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (oceandecade.org) and look for ways to collaborate.
"Oceans are facing increasing pressures: biodiversity loss, pollution, over-exploitation and illegal activities; and diverse impacts of climate change, such as ocean warming, acidification and rising sea level, are increasingly alarming. From the headquarters of international organizations as well as in the most vulnerable and ocean dependent countries, it is acknowledged that it is time to change the way we manage oceans and their resources in order to keep them healthy, productive, safe, secure and resilient." - Foresight | Laura Cagiagli
