Conference Theme: Local Ripples, Global Waves

The ocean is our lifeline. It feeds us, provides the air that we breathe, links vast continents, and helps foster deeper human connections. A healthy ocean supports a healthy Earth, yet finding ways to help our ocean flourish can be challenging. How can one individual make a difference when there is such a diversity of global interests influencing the ocean?

During this conference, we want to celebrate the difference that one individual can make. Through artwork, research, and engagement, we aim to highlight these individuals through our Photography Contest and People's Choice presentations. We encourage you to vote for your favourite photo, as well as your favourite oral, and poster presentations that will be displayed during our conference.

 The voting period for both of our contests is now CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who voted! Winners will be announced on our social media!
