    World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. This year's theme is “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet” and individuals and organizations across the planet are taking action for prevention of plastic pollution in our ocean.

    World Oceans Day has grown tremendously each year since The Ocean Project started coordinating it in 2002. With hundreds of partners involved, and the United Nations officially recognizing June 8 as World Oceans Day in 2008, we have reached millions worldwide.

    The CMT is widely considered the world's foremost congress related to tourism and recreation in coastal and marine environments and is attended by academics, students and practitioners from around the world. The congresses offer opportunities for the presentation and publication of refereed and working papers, as well as posters. A strong feature of the congresses is the supportive and collegial atmosphere where students are particularly encouraged to engage and contribute to the field. CMT is the official congress of the International Costal and Marine Tourism Society (ICMTS).

    Stockholm Resilience Centre together with the Resilience Alliance are excited to welcome you to the upcoming Resilience 2017 conference in Stockholm. Following previous Resilience conferences, held on triennial basis since 2008, Resilience 2017 will discuss resilience as a key lens for biosphere-based sustainability science. It will reflect back on the scientific progress made, and to set out exciting future directions for research. A main focus will be on global sustainability challenges and opportunities, which today are heavily influenced by the speed, scale and connectivity of the Anthropocene.

    La Serena-Coquimbo, Chile

    Marine Protected Areas are extremely dynamic and energetic environments where humans meet the ocean. Fishing, aquaculture, tourism, recreation, navigation, sailing and scientific research are just a few of the activities that take place in MPAs. Given the complex nature of MPAs, participants from multidisciplinary backgrounds will reconvene in La Serena, Chile for IMPAC4, an international conference with a program that covers a wide array of topics, including management tools, conservation biology, ecology, fisheries, climate change, monitoring, enforcement, community development, communications, education, business administration, and much more!

    During four full days, plus an initial welcome evening, recent activities and trends in MPA management and science will be presented and discussed. A more detailed program will be available soon once principal topics and streams have been defined.
