At the Marine Regions Forum 2019, several workshop-type dialogue sessions on selected topics will be offered in parallel, facilitating 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 deepen the discussions, provide further food for thought and synthesize recommendations emanating from the dialogue sessions. Marine Regions Forum plenaries will be interactive and enable audience led conversation amongst conference attendees, the plenary panelists and the moderator.

In addition, an engaging supporting program will be offered during the breaks to create an inspiring and fruitful atmosphere.

The current draft agenda for the conference can be found below and here. Updated program overviews will be published on this page once they become available.
