2022 United Nations Oceans Conference Side Event: Marine Protected Areas, Source-to-sea Concepts and Multi-use of Marine Space

Pavilion of Knowledge, Library – Lisbon, Portugal


Join us for this side event focusing on marine protected areas, source-to-sea concepts and multi-use of marine space in Europe's seas and transitional waters – all timely topics in marine management and conservation. In three different sessions, a series of ambitious projects will provide an insightful picture of how to balance the increasing use of coastal-marine ecosystems with the preservation or even restoration of their biological richness, by mitigating impacts and curbing pressures to achieve true sustainability. Based on the project contributions, a wider panel discussion with experts from different fields of knowledge will discuss the synergies of the approaches, look for holistic solutions and consider what is needed to realise the vision of thriving, healthy European coasts and seas for future generations.

Please note: this event will take place as an in-person event in Portugal.
