In a world where we are constantly confronted by environmental emergencies, the challenge for scientists to define problems and find solutions are getting more and more urgent. The UN has declared the current decade (2021 -2030) as the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. In that context, the YOUMARES conference 2022 will use the second outcome of the Ocean We Want: “A healthy and resilient ocean, where marine ecosystems are understood, protected, restored, and managed” as a guiding framework to promote marine research that covers a variety of ocean related fields and, simultaneously touches upon the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

No matter if you are a marine scientist, marine engineer, innovator in the marine field, belonging to an NGO, a social scientist or an expert in marine governance and policy WE INVITE YOU to share your projects with us. WE ARE CALLING for advanced students (MA), early career scientists (PhD students, PhDs), and young innovators to SEND YOUR ABSTRACT to participate in one of our sessions. The goal of YOUMARES 13 is to create a dynamic young scientist meta-network across different disciplines and to create opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and knowledge.
