Ahead of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 1 – 12 November 2021, IFREMER (the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea) in partnership with the IRD (the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development) and the CNRS (the French National Centre for Scientific Research) will be holding the OneOceanScience digital event on 25th October 2021.
OneOceanScience is a digital world tour covering ocean and climate science on the seven seas with scientists from more than 39 countries showcasing the importance of ocean science in predicting and addressing climate change and its impacts. The event will include videos, social posts, quizzes, interviews, where scientists explain why ocean science matters, what solutions they are working on and how we can all work together to ensure that ocean science delivers greater benefits for both the ocean ecosystem and for society.
The event includes a session with Thomas Pesquet, a European Space Agency astronaut onboard the International Space Station who will share his views on the Ocean from Space, telling us why ocean science matters. On 5 November 2021, OneOceanScience will open the Ocean Action Day at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties.
