Given the excellent conversation US-based NGOs have had at previous scoping/organizing meetings around the Ocean Decade, we are now gathering for a structured working session to put ideas for engagement to paper. We will have breakout sessions to collaboratively strategize on specific topics, including engaging funders and communicating about the Ocean Decade with various stakeholders. Each group will be provided with a Google Doc that includes suggested topics to discuss and address. These outputs will later be compiled in a strategy document and shared for review. Please note that this meeting is a gathering of NGOs, but if non-NGO colleagues want to learn about how their organization can get involved with the Ocean Decade, email firstname.lastname@example.org to be connected with relevant parties.
Please register for the meeting via Zoom here and email email@example.com with an indication of which breakout session topic you are most interested in at this time. This is to help us pre-plan accordingly; you may choose which group to join during the meeting.
Tuesday, June 22nd from 1:30-3 pm EST / 10:30-12 pm PST
