Description

Dear Oceans Community,

It has been an exciting year for Oceans since we all met last year in Valparaiso, with the approval of our Oceans Strategy, our Areas of Collective Action and Innovation (ACAIs) gaining momentum, and our Coral Reef and Plastics initiatives being a major feature of Annual Conference, along with the excellent work of the LAC Oceans teams.

This year we are bringing the Oceans Focal Point community and the ACAI convenors together from Tuesday 25 September to Friday 28 September in Palermo, Sicily, another historic port city. We are very grateful to the WWF Mediterranean Marine Initiative team for hosting us in what promises to be an important and key meeting.

At last year’s focal point meeting, we focused on the ‘what’ of what we want to deliver together in the strategy. This year we intend to focus on the ‘how’ we deliver those strategies and achieve the impact at scale that we are all seeking.

With this in mind, we are using a simple survey so that you can all ‘have your say’ on the agenda for this year’s meeting. Thank you to those who have already participated. There are some clear trends emerging about what people want to spend time. If you have not yet participated here is the SURVEY LINK. We will be putting the first draft of the agenda together in the next two weeks and your input is highly valued.

Being in the Mediterranean is a great opportunity to learn about the work of the WWF Mediterranean Marine Initiative and the offices that are involved in a region that has a close connection to the oceans and to seafood.

I would encourage you to book your travel and accommodation and register for the meeting as soon as possible. If you are unable to personally attend please give thought to a proxy from your region. If you have questions regarding logistics please reach out to Lynda on lreeve@wwfint.org. If you have questions on the operational purpose of the meeting please contact myself or Gilly.

Thank you for all your contributions and for the strong sense of community within the oceans practice

And thank you for your continuing support and engagement.

Best,
John
