The workshop will take place virtually, hosted by the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to discuss:

  • possible cooperative structures for the G7 to use to implement the G7 Ocean Decade Navigation Plan and contribute to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development,
  • best practice regarding international collaboration with a range of partners, and
  • how the G7 can identify priorities to translate to actionable initiatives.

The group will focus on three spotlight priorities: Global Ocean Indicator Framework, Digital Twin Oceans, and Net-Zero Oceanographic Capability. The UK and EU* coordinators of the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative (FSOI) Coordination Centre, will take part in the discussions to explore how the G7 FSOI can best support the Navigation plan.
