The Ocean Pavilion returns to the UN Climate Conference for a second year to underscore the integral role of our ocean in climate and serve as the central hub for conference delegates to exchange ideas on addressing the climate crisis by leveraging ocean science and solutions.  Throughout the conference, which runs from Nov 30 – Dec 12, the pavilion will feature more than 80 events, meetings, and in-depth discussions, and visitors to the pavilion will also be able to learn more about the work of Ocean Pavilion partners engaged in the search for solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
