As part of our series of events in preparation for the conference Rio+20 next year we would like to discuss with you critical issues such as the protection of the sea and its sustainable use, conflicts of usage and appropriate solutions, the EU fisheries policies and international conservation efforts. For this we would like to invite you to a congress on new impulses for the international protection of our oceans
Scientists and representatives of various protection and user associations will discuss this array of topics, whilst the responsible ministries of the federal German government will provide the necessary political evaluations. Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel and the European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Maria Damanaki have already confirmed their participation in the congress.
