Being endorsed by the United Nations and having the privilege to be recognized as an important project by the Ocean Decade is great news for OCEAN CITIZEN. It means that the consortium is working towards “the science we need for the ocean we want,” as per the Ocean Decade motto.
Last year, in May 2022, the OCEAN CITIZEN project was endorsed by the United Nations (UN) as a Light House project. This achievement is important because it opens the doors to communicate the project worldwide.
In September 2023, we will have the opportunity to present the project, along with the COST action MAF-WORLD, at the UN in New York. The endorsement is a key factor in reinforcing the visibility of the project, which aligns with several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN.
