Over 600 people from 78 countries joined forces at the fourth Ocean Decade Laboratory "A Healthy and Resilient Ocean".
Scientists and other relevant stakeholders of society discussed what is necessary for a healthy ocean, interlinked with traditional knowledge. The Core Event was accompanied by 32 Satellite Activities held all over the world, which were then streamed together into one, three-day long Ocean Decade Laboratory from 9 to 11 March 2022. One Satellite Activity initiated by British NGO "Common Seas" explained a global partnership launched to spearhead plastic policy aimed at an 85 per cent reduction in plastic waste.
