REGISTRATION FORM - COMEST seminar 9 May 2018, on Water Ethics: Ocean, Freshwater and Coastal Areas

The ocean, freshwater and coastal waters face a series of pressures from
climate change, pollution and resource exploitation. Building on the recent
UNESCO Declaration on Ethical Principles in relation to Climate Change (2017),
COMEST has drafted a report on Water Ethics that underlines the interconnectedness
and the dependency between humankind and these global water cycles.
The report takes a holistic approach, reviewing the challenges and developing
a series of ethical principles and recommendations for water ethics.

The seminar will bring together international and Norwegian experts,
including representatives to UNESCOs International Hydrology Programme (IHP)
and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
The aim of the meeting is to present the draft COMEST report, and to stimulate debate
through insights on current scientific, cultural and societal challenges from invited speakers.


The meeting will be held at Det Norske Videnskapsakademiet, DNVA, Oslo,
starting at 10:00 and finishing at 15:00. Participation is free upon registration.

The seminar is co-sponsored by UNESCO and the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.
