2. Stories from women working in ocean related fields for the UN Conference on SDG 14
The Pacific Ocean Alliance is one of 18 partners on the “Healers of our ocean: Asia-Pacific women leading ocean action to achieve SDG14” event led by UN Environment, which will take place on 5 June in New York.
In the lead up to this event, UN Environment are requesting stories from women working in ocean related fields, with the objective of highlighting the need for engagement of Asia-Pacific women in marine sciences and ocean management, and to inspire the increased inclusion of women in marine management planning. Attached to this email is a guide for the kind of stories requested, which will be shared online and via social media. If you would like to participate, please contact Tiffany Straza at firstname.lastname@example.org, either with the completed form, or she will arrange a time to capture your story. By sharing your story you can contribute to inspiring women and girls inclusion in the marine field. Please share this invitation widely!
