The Ocean Decade is a once in a generation opportunity and the first global campaign to catalyze transformative ocean science solutions for sustainable development. The 1st International Conference to Ocean Decade on 1 June 2021 will kick start a Decade full of new innovations, opportunities and partnerships. 

The Virtual Early Career Ocean Professional (V.ECOP) Day will start on June 1, 2021, as a 24-hour livestream event following the sun around the world.

The V.ECOP Day will be directly linked to the kick-off conference to be held on 1 June. The V.ECOP Day is an event organized by ECOPs for ECOPs. We therefore invite ECOPs (as individuals, groups, as employees of NGOs, companies, etc.) to submit proposals that will be considered for the V.ECOP Day Program. This is an opportunity to present your ideas to promote a sustainable ocean with thousands of people around the world and initiate an exchange of views and ideas.


The organizers currently have open calls for:

  • Presenters: Review the Call for Contributors for more information about the tasks and application process.
  • Film Makers: Showcase your short or feature film in our virtual event cinema. Whether five minutes or two hours, we welcome ocean and science related videos to entertain and inform our attendees. Contact us directly at for details.
  • Exhibitors: Want to showcase your organization or activities at our virtual booth for FREE? Space is limited so contact us soon at for details.

Whether early career, experienced, or considering joining the ocean community, we cordially invite you to join us for this exciting virtual event. We’ll add more details in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, be sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter , and please share this information with your friends and colleagues!
