The ocean is our planet’s life-support system and is a critical part of Earth’s climate. It is also a source of hope and holds a wealth of opportunity to help solve many of humanity’s most pressing challenges, including climate change.

For the first time, the ocean is took center stage inside the COP Blue Zone. The Ocean Pavilion brought together world leaders in ocean science, engineering, and policy to carry the message that the ocean matters to everyone, everywhere and that science must lead the way in our quest for safe, long-term solutions to climate change.



The Ocean Pavilion served as a central hub for over 15,000 conference delegates and more than 60 events where ideas were exchanged about how to address climate change by leveraging the ocean. Throughout the conference, held from November 6 to 18, the pavilion featured events, meetings and in-depth discussions that elaborated on the daily conference themes.

Visitors to the pavilion were able to learn about the work of the Ocean Pavilion partners and to serve as a learning and collaboration platform between scientists and policy makers as we search for solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
