Following the inaugural Roundtable session, which was held in-person at The Ocean x Climate Summit at COP 27, the second in the series will be held virtually and mirror the format to include smaller discussion ‘circles’ (via breakout rooms) for all to contribute and participate in a more intimate setting.
A summary of the first Roundtable Session (hosted on Nov 11, 2022 at COP 27) will be shared to integrate further insights as well as facilitate followup actions with their breakout group. The summary document will be shared with the group prior to the March meeting so the reconvening can carry the conversation forward and help set clear targets for the future. Previous Roundtable participation is not required to attend this event.
