[EVENT] Global Ocean Commission – Report launching event
24 June 2014

The high level, independent Global Ocean Commission will publish the findings of its 18-month inquiry into the threats facing the ocean and the solutions necessary to avert further decline and stimulate restoration of ocean health. The Commission, which is comprised of serving and former senior politicians and business leaders with a range of experience and expertise, was convened in 2013 to formulate politically and technically feasible short, medium and long-term proposals to address key areas of threat to the high seas. The closing report sets out these proposals and following publication, the Commissioners will bring them to world and business leaders able to action them. The Commission will also seek to engage individuals and civil society in ocean protection.

The meeting will take place in New York, USA on June 24th. To learn more about the initiative and the meeting please visit: http://www.globaloceancommission.org/
