Project led by :
Ocean Unite, The Pew Charitable Trusts, Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition
The project is led by a diverse group of high-level influencers from the world of sports, politics, business, media and science, to build support for protecting more than seven million square kilometers of Antarctic waters by 2020.
In the coming year, they expect to secure large-scale marine protected areas in the Southern Ocean, the waters around Antarctica. To achieve these objectives, they would like to raise awareness and obtain the support of key decision-makers in various regions of the world and to advocate for Antarctic marine protection at key events. The Scale-up Committee of the Paris Peace Forum provides tailored advice and support to the project leaders, more particularly in the areas of political lobbying and advocacy.
