Introduction - Read before proceeding

As described in the Ocean Decade Implementation Plan, a Decade Activity is a one-off standalone initiative (such as an event, a publication, a workshop, or a training opportunity) that contributes to a Decade programme or project or to one of the Ocean Decade Challenges.

Decade Activities will be carried out by partners around the world as part of the collective effort to fulfill the Decade vision. Only Decade Activities that have received official endorsement can use the Ocean Decade logo in their communications. To request endorsement for your proposed Ocean Decade Activity and have it recognized as an official part of the Ocean Decade, please read the Guidance Note carefully and fill out the form according to the type of request you'd like to make.

Please note, due to the high volume of requests received, delays may occur. Therefore we advise submitting your request in advance - at least 8 weeks.

Please contact if you require further information.
