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.
