OVERALL VISION

#VirtualBlueDecade aims to provide a global platform that brings the ocean, biodiversity and climate action communities together to contribute to the achievement of  sustainable development goals through ocean knowledge and action. Diversity and inclusion makes us stronger. #VirtualBlueDecade will only be possible if we collaborate together from North to South, and West to East. We want to make sure that our virtual resources will be equally available everywhere in the world.

OUR VALUES

COLLECTIVE

INTELLIGENCE

 

A dose of something different can be magical! With just one click, #VirtualBlueDecade delivers to your desktop a diverse range of viewpoints on ocean, biodiversity, and climate challenges and solutions from the perspective of scientists, activists, farmers, artists, decision makers, etc.

REDUCING

EMISSIONS

Knowing that every tenth of a degree of ocean warming puts huge stress on marine ecosystems, #VirtualBlueDecade is a lower carbon proposition using technology to maximize opportunities for sharing, while reducing emissions and increasing ambition.

BE INCLUSIVE - REDUCED INEQUALITIES

Diversity and inclusion make us stronger.  #VirtualBlueDecade will only be possible if we collaborate together from North to South, and West to East. We want to make sure that our virtual resources will be equally available everywhere in the world.

FUN IN LEARNING AND SHARING

We want to have fun while learning about ocean, biodiversity, and climate change actions around the world. Unlike traditional fly-in conferencing, #VirtualBlueDecade will go the extra mile offering an array of interactive sessions in various formats.
