Join UNESCO to celebrate women in ocean science at World Oceans Day 2019
This World Oceans Day, 8 June, will be dedicated to gender and the ocean. To celebrate the day, UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission and the World Heritage Centre are teaming up to honour all women whose scientific work is enhancing the conservation of the 49 marine sites inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Join up and send us your short video by 31 May 2019.
Everyone can participate by submitting a short video of a woman scientist highlighting her invaluable work in support of the conservation of the 49 marine sites inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The best short films will be featured on World Oceans Day at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, France, and through social media worldwide. Deadline for submitting videos is Friday 31 May. Guidelines for submission and other practical information is available here.
The United Nations celebrates World Oceans Day every year on 8 June. The 2019 theme “Gender and Oceans” is an opportunity to explore the gender dimension of humankind’s relationship with the ocean and to help drive World Heritage marine site conservation in the framework of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021–2030).
