SYMPOSIUM

Discussing Ocean conservation in Portuguese

AIMM - Marine Environment Research Association, in partnership with Ocean Hub Portugal, is preparing the symposium “Discussing Ocean conservation in Portuguese”, as a way to celebrate the International Day for the Portuguese Language and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP), on May 5th.
The event will be held in Portuguese.

The goal of this symposium is to promote knowledge exchange and to raise awareness about the various ongoing initiatives in the field of ocean conservation throughout countries that share our common language. We will host speakers from 7 countries: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissa, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe. Each speaker will have 15 minutes to tell us about their work, followed by a brief opportunity to interact with the participants. The event program is detailed below, organised according to local time zones for the convenience of each speaker.

Note: This Symposium has limited registration and will be broadcast live via Zoom.

The Symposium will be recorded and made available later on AIMM's social networks.

We thank all the speakers who made themselves available to celebrate

this day with us and to contribute to this symposium.

This online symposium is free and aimed at all nature lovers.
