The Marine Regions Forum team is currently developing the program schedule for the conference. The program will be published on this page once it is finalized.

Conference structure

Under the three conference themes, workshop-type dialogue sessions on selected topics will be offered in parallel. These sessions will facilitate the in-depth exploration and discussion of key issues. Different facilitation techniques will be employed in the sessions to stimulate exchange, open discussions and create an overall productive atmosphere. In several of these sessions, participants will work together to formulate actionable recommendations.

The plenary sessions during the three conference days will aim to deepen the discussions, provide further food for thought and synthesize recommendations emanating from the parallel sessions. Marine Regions Forum plenaries will be interactive and enable audience led conversation amongst MRF conference attendees, the plenary panelists and the moderator.
