From June 5-9, 2017, the SDG Media Zone was partnered with EARTHx at the Ocean Conference to communicate through editors, bloggers, high-level delegates and influencers the rising importance of the state of the world’s ocean, which is rapidly deteriorating.
The panel discussions and interviews involved ministers, high-level representatives of civil society organizations, ocean advocates and celebrities. Including youth advocates from around the world who have started their own campaigns to make a difference, and celebrity ocean advocates such as Adrian Grenier, Richard Branson and Cody Simpson, to H.E. Peter Thomson, President of the United Nations General Assembly; and Irina Bokova, Director-general of UNESCO.
The conference provided a live broadcast of these interviews, panel discussions and other digital content which engaged people all around the world in the important conversations regarding the ocean's health happening at the conference.
