#G7UK is taking place at Carbis Bay, Cornwall on 11-13 June 2021.

In 2021, the G7 has a unique opportunity to lead the global ocean protection and recovery needed to:

  • Tackle climate disruption
  • Reverse biodiversity loss
  • Support human wellbeing, and
  • Embark on a successful, inspirational recovery from the COVID 19 pandemic

Scientists from G7 countries have identified seven asks for the G7 to lead a stimulus package of policy and science interventions to:

  • Stop damaging the ocean
  • Protect, manage and restore the ocean
  • Lead a decade of global ocean action

See more below on our current G7 activities, including the Science Statement written by a collection of ocean scientists from G7 countries, and an NGO letter to Ministers ahead of G7 Environment Ministers Meeting 20 & 21 May.

To support amplification of the Ministerial Letter, Scientist Statement, and #ListenToTheOcean on Social Media, follow @OceanFlotilla on Twitter and Instagram. Flotilla members can use the #ListenToTheOcean Social Toolkit sent by email.

We’re delighted the #ListenToTheOcean message is gathering momentum. You may have also seen this strapline used separately by @PlymouthMarine and we hope this hasn’t caused any confusion with their important research in support of sustainable oceans.

This project is made possible through the support of Bloomberg Philanthropies, Vibrant Oceans Initiative and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
