MARE 2023 | Policy Day 2023
We are excited to inform you that the theme for the policy day has been decided. This years policy day will focus on marine (nature) restoration. The event will take place prior to the conference (26 June) and will bring together scientists, stakeholders, and policy officers to critically reflect on questions like: what do we understand to be a healthy ecological state? What kind of (scientific, lay, indigenous) knowledge is included or excluded to inform intervention? What is a good reef or seagrass bed to restore and for whom? What and whose definition of biodiversity underpins policies to restore it? And what are the social impacts of restoration policies and programs?
During the registration, you will be given the option to attend the policy day.
