The Third UN Ocean Conference will take place in Nice in June 2025. It is chaired jointly by the governments of France and Costa Rica. This follows the first and second UN Ocean Conferences, respectively held in New York in June 2017 and in Lisbon in June 2022.
It is recognised that in order for the conference to create transformative change, participation and input from civil society and NGOs is essential. To drive this, a global consultation is now open until 15th June 2023. All civil society organisations working on ocean issues around the world are invited to share feedback and expectations for the upcoming Conference.
