Come and Contribute to the Research Agenda in Social Sciences for the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The event will take place at « Le Quartz » congress hall in Brest on November 5th and 6th.



The United Nations General Assembly has declared the decade 2021-2030 as the « Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development ». The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO is in charge of submitting a programme for this decade. To this purpose, a series of international events, workshops and symposia are organized to contribute to the work of IOC. IOC is assisted in this task by a group of 19 international experts, the Executive Planning Group.



In this context, the Ocean University Initiative has proposed to the MARE conference in June 2019 to organize an international event, between conference and workshop. The aims are to gather researchers in the human and social sciences, in all their diversity, to identify central issues and conditions for the involvement of the social sciences in the UN initiative. Our event, under the name GLOSS (GLobal Ocean Social Sciences), has been labelled « Ocean Decade Event » by the IOC
