We are planning an event in October 2019 on Climate Change Impacts on Oceans, including ocean acidification and de-oxygenation, from a scientific and international governance perspective. Four panelists will kick-start the discussion with a short presentation followed by one hour of discussion with participants. We will invite members from our networks.

Date to be confirmed soon. 


On the 17th of May 2019, ACOPS hosted guests at the House of Lords for a changing of the guard that aspires to build on a storied history with an updated vision, scope and strategy . In the same time than celebrating the 67th year of existence of ACOPS, we launched at ACOPS 67 a new plan to embrace a new age of communication and multi-stakeholder engagement.  Marine environmental issues are not solely a government affair. Progress towards sustainable ocean requires constructive discussions that also involves scientists, industry, investors and the civil society.
