Ocean Literacy 2018

The Ocean Literacy 2018 conference will be held in Malmö, Sweden 6-7th December. The aim is to inspire, learn, debate and drive action at a local level for the marine environment with focus on ocean literacy in coastal cities.

At the Ocean Conference at the United Nations in June 2017, organisations across the globe made commitments to take action for the ocean environment in support of UN Sustainable Development Goal 14. The City of Malmö and ICLEI, together committed to use the Life Below Water 2017 conference in Malmö as a starting point for a mobilisation of action at a local level led by local governments. With Ocean Literacy 2018 we take the next step.

The conference is organized by the City of Malmö and the World Maritime University in co-operation with the Marine Educational Center in Malmö.
