UN Decade of Ocean Science and the 2nd Indian Ocean Expedition
12.30 – 1.30pm
Wednesday 28 April, 2021
Auditorium, Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre
Speaker: Dr Nick D’Adamo, Head of the UNESCO IOC Perth Programme Office
There are profound challenges facing scientific and user communities in addressing the informational needs and societal responses required to adapt and mitigate to a changing ocean and coupled climate. This applies to the Indian Ocean as a whole and for the globe’s inter-connected Earth systems. The World's attention on the oceans is experiencing a major renewed focus through the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-30 (www.oceandecade.org), and, closer to Western Australia, also through the Second International Indian Ocean Expedition (www.iioe-2.incois.gov.in).
Dr Nick D’Adamo, Head of the UNESCO IOC Perth Programme Office and Adjunct Member of the Oceans Institute will describe the Office’s IOC coordinated portfolio, tracing a capacity building theme across coupled ocean/climate, biogeochemistry, and ecosystem sciences. The Perth Office’s work connects the interests of Western Australia, Australia, and the wider oceanic sphere.
World Environment Day
The theme of this year’s World Environment Day is Ecosystem Restoration. Pakistan will act as global host of the day.
World Environment Day 2021 will see the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
National Reconciliation Week – More Than A Word
Reconciliation Australia’s theme for 2021, More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
Influencing environmental policy with science: Dr Tom Hatton
Explore the challenges, pitfalls and strategies in making research influential with those who manage or regulate our environment
How a researcher represents their work can have a deep impact on policy and policymakers. This seminar will explore the challenges, pitfalls and strategies in making research influential with those who manage or regulate our environment. We will explore the choices that a researcher can make and the consequences of how they position their work in front of key decision-makers.
The seminar will be provided by OI Adjunct Professor Tom Hatton PSM FTSE, recently retired Chair of the Environmental Protection Authority and former research scientist and executive with the CSIRO.
This event is part of the Expert Series hosted by the Oceans Institute. You can find out more about other free events in this series by visiting: www.oceans.uwa.edu.au
AMSAwa Marine Snapchat
All WA marine scientists are invited to share their work and find out what’s happening in Marine Science in WA. The Snapchat format allows speakers the opportunity to present in an informal setting. With a high level of audience engagement, these evenings have always been a great success in the past.
The proposed venue (Kim Beasley Lecture Theatre, Murdoch University) has a large capacity so social distancing can be achieved with ease – fingers crossed that COVID restrictions don’t change in the next few weeks.
We hope to enjoy the company of real people at a live event!
