The role of the oceans in Earth's Life-Support System

The Symposium will serve as a forum for discussion of societal information needs resulting from the important role the oceans play in Earth's life-support system and the challenge of minimizing the impacts of human activities on the oceans while utilizing the resources of the oceans to meet our needs. The symposium will also be a platform for the participating communities to exchange information on their activities and identify potential pilot and prototype projects for Blue Planet to focus on in the coming years. The Symposium will address four subthemes:

- The changing oceans 
- Threats from pollution, warming and acidification 
- Processes and life at the interfaces with the oceans 
- Sustainable use of ocean resources
