At the core of the Our Ocean conferences are voluntary commitments for significant and meaningful actions towards clean, healthy and productive oceans. Previous conferences have resulted in nearly one thousand commitments. Governments, organisations and businesses are encouraged to announce new and far-reaching actions to the best of our oceans at this year’s conference. Commitments should have significant impact, be measurable and have a clear timeframe.
New commitments for this year’s conference can be registered here. Registered commitments will be sent to the host for approval. New commitments will be made public after the relevant session at the conference on 23-24 October.
Progress on commitments should be reported annually to the host-country of the conference.
The deadline for registering new commitments is 1 October.
