Transitioning towards a respectful custodianship of our oceans and coasts
Our oceans and coasts are diverse and interconnected. Collaboration is our strength, underlying and reinforcing our capacity to think, innovate, and invest in their long-term wellbeing. The 2021 Our Coastal Futures conference will bring together voices from researchers, practitioners, Indigenous peoples, activists, businesses, youth, and decision-makers. This vibrant conference will inspire new ideas to enable a transition towards respectful custodianship of our oceans and coasts. This event is designed to foster a sense of trust and respect among all, emphasizing diversity, innovation, and connections. The program will include traditional formats and other expressions, to create a new narrative on the role of respectful ocean and coastal custodianship, based on trust, reciprocity, communication and collaboration.
Come join us at Our Coastal Futures 2021 conference from 17 – 20 October, plus three days of workshop and excursion opportunities (16, 21, 22 October 2021) on the Gold Coast, Australia. We’re still finalizing the agenda, but a fantastic line-up is already taking shape.
