The 72nd United Nation General Assembly (UNGA) held in December 2017 proclaimed "UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030, hereafter the UN Decade)", and the IOC/UNESCO has started preparatory actions as a responsible organization to develop implementation plan of UN Decade to submit the plan at the 75th UNGA in the fall of 2020. In the series of preparatory actions and meetings, internationally Japanese government hosted the North Pacific Regional Workshop together with PICES and IOC/WESTPAC from July 31st to August 2nd, 2019 in Tokyo, and domestically after September 2019 Japan Oceanographic Society and Science Council of Japan hosted several symposiums to foster dialogues among communities.
In this session, followed by several lectures about the UN Decade and on the progress of preparations of the UN Decade, we will foster discussion and dialogues for the purposes to seek directions of activities of ocean sciences for the UN Decade in a free, open-minded, and positive atmosphere among ocean scientists and stakeholders by using ideas of ocean science plans to be submitted by individual scientists.
We expect to have submissions about ocean scientific plans in association with the UN Decade as many as possible, and in particular we strongly encourage the proposals by younger generations and early carrier scientists, who will bear the ocean science during the period of the UN Decade. We will also welcome the trans-disciplinary plans bearing in the mind of SDGs, and the participatory plans from multi-sector including private sectors.
