It is organised on the occasion of the first year of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) and within the framework of the Pre-Conference of the Parties (COP) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The main theme of Oceanthon 2021 is “Ocean&Climate“, and participants will compete to address the increasingly important challenge related to the climate crisis, with the aim of finding interdisciplinary solutions to face global change effects on society and the environment.
This second edition is dedicated to the Mediterranean area, and for this reason the call is open to both individuals and trained teams from all Mediterranean coastal states.
The initiative is addressed to students, the scientific community, the world of developers, designers, artists, engineers, experts in communication, social sciences and business who are ready to use their skills and entrepreneurial spirit and join forces to develop ideas that can respond to present and future challenges while promoting a greater knowledge of the ocean, its protection and the sustainable use of marine resources.
