September 26: World Maritime Day

The UN General Assembly created World Maritime Day to allow local, national and international governments as well as the general public, to organize celebrations of the planet’s seas. One of the goals of this day is to gain attention, raise awareness and mobilize resources to meet sustainable development goals.

Objectif Sciences International, an NGO which works closely with the United Nations, participates in the GENEVA FORUM in order to highlight and assess the management of resources derived from the seas, which account for 70% of the planet. The need to understand these areas and the need for the international community to protect and maintain them through effective laws is highlighted during events like this.

If you wish to attend or present a project at the Forum, please register under the “Rights of Nature" category by clicking on the following link: GENEVA FORUM Program
