The Ocean Race Summit Auckland
The Ocean Race Summit Auckland is the first summit by the round-the-world sailing race to be hosted in Australasia.
The Ocean Race Summits take place across the world, providing a global platform that aims to accelerate action for the ocean by reaching the decision-makers who can make this happen.
The current series of 12 Summits, which take place between 2019 and 2023, are helping to drive new and improved policies around the major issues affecting the ocean: lack of governance, lack of protection, and climate change. The series also examines whether giving the ocean ‘rights’ could be the key to ensuring its future.
The Ocean Race Summit Auckland, which will be held on 17 November, will address challenges with Aotearoa’s seas and spotlight inspiring local marine solutions to the urgent issues affecting the planet.
The Summits support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG14) to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources. The goal highlights that ‘saving our ocean must remain a priority’ and that ‘careful management of this essential global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future’, this is echoed in the themes tackled in The Ocean Race Summits.
Programme coming soon.
