#OceanAction21532
Commitment by Canary Islands and their marine environments
by Sociedad Atlántica de Oceanógrafos (SAO) (Civil society organization)
The SAO is worried about the impacts of human actions and the climate change on the oceans. Then, we are working on local actions in Canary Islands (Spain) because we are convinced that acting in small and located regions we will be able to achieve global results. These actions are discussed during the local event: Foro Océanos 2017 in Gran Canaria where many social agents are participating (scientists, politicians, enterprises, educational groups, associations) and analyzing the environmental problems that are affecting the resilience of our oceans at local level. In addition, we will propose the actions will minimize the impact on the development and sustainability of our marine environments. After the event, we will follow up the local actions to improve in the next years. All these commitments will be included in the document: Compromiso por Canarias y su Océano.
