The Forum is structured around plenary lectures, coffee shops and side events.

Plenary sessions

Plenary sessions will make room for leading figures of conservation, renowned specialists or young leaders in an array of areas coming within the framework of oceans management. They will provide an opportunity to consider emerging and current issues related to the sustainable management of oceans.


Debate cafes

Debate cafes will be one of the key activities of the Forum. Conservation stakeholders and participants will meet to discuss and exchange knowledge, experience and initiatives around the sub-themes.

Side events

Side events will be organised in the form of learning workshops, organisation-related sessions or screening debates.
A Master class is a learning session for professionals. The purpose is for them to present a technique or a proven practice that significantly impacts coastal and marine biodiversity and/or the lives of coastal communities.
The organisation-related session is directed at those conservation organisations that wish to present an initiative and/or share findings from projects, research work, etc.
A screening-debate is about a high-value documentary film dealing with the theme of the Forum that you may wish to circulate in order to spur discussions and draw lessons.
