A transdisciplinary and co-creative approach is at the heart of the development of the Marine Regions Forum.

The Marine Regions Forum is developed in a co-creative process by a team of researchers and experts from different fields and disciplines such as marine policy, environmental governance or ocean science.

Designed to facilitate informal dialogue, the Marine Regions Forum allows decision-makers, scientists, civil society representatives and other actors to exchange outside of formal governance processes. This enables common understandings of challenges and opportunities faced by marine regions and, ultimately, collective responses.

Environmental solutions require a new type of knowledge production and decision making processes. The co-design of concepts, co-production of knowledge, and co-dissemination of outcomes help produce high impact.
