Description

Conference "MARINE EXPEDITIONS FOR CLIMATE", 03/06/2019, 6-8pm, French Embassy in Berlin

---

Marine expeditions have always inspired the public imagination with discoveries and technological exploits. Nowadays, they play a crucial role in helping us to understand climate change and its impact on our ecosystems. This conference aims to highlight three major expeditions that are contributing to research on sustainability in different ways: Tara, a polar schooner that has been travelling across the oceans since 2007 and advancing research on the protection of the environment; Energy Observer, the world’s first hydrogen vessel, which has been nominated as “French ambassador of the Sustainable Development Goals”; and MOSAIC, the largest-scale Arctic research expedition of all time, which will start in September 2019 with the German research icebreaker Polarstern. All these major research and development projects call for sustainable development and raise awareness of the importance of protecting the oceans and climate. So get on board!

The conference is part of a series of events of the European Sustainable Development Week 2019, launched by the German foreign office in Berlin. It will be held in English, with no translation provided.

Only registered guests will be admitted.
