Addressing Ocean Conservation through an Intersectional Feminist Lens

SIDE EVENT @ UN OCEAN CONFERENCE

1st July 2022 @ 10am ET/3pm Lisbon Time

This side event will bring together the voices of women from ocean-dependent countries to highlight the critical, and often unseen role that women and girls play in ocean conservation, focussing on the intersectional ground-level work being undertaken by women and girls in all of their diversity in different parts of the world in creating a sustainable ocean-based economy. 
We will highlight the innovative, science-based and intersectional solutions being implemented by women and girls across the world to create a circular ocean-based bio-economy, who are linking the achievement of Goal 14 intrinsically with Goal 5, Gender Equality, and Goal 8, Decent Work & Economic Growth, to create a healthier ocean system for all.
