Participative conference
« Governance of the high seas and the protection of its biodiversity: see you in New York! »

 A participatory conference and a unique meeting of citizens based on a hot topic on the international scene: the governance of the high seas and the protection of the biodiversity found there.

Thanks to an original and playful approach, express yourself live on real subjects of international governance which are currently being negotiated at the UN. Through political discourse and advocacy, experts on the subject will try to convince them of the merits of their action. What position will you vote for?

Conference introduced by Nadège LEGROUX, PhD student at the University of Montpellier and French Development Agency and including Benjamin DUDOUET, Master’s student in economics applied to agriculture, the sea and the environment and president of the Infusion association, Joëlle RICHARD, engineer and researcher in capacity building at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale, and Bleuenn GUILLOUX, post-doc researcher in maritime law at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale.

 

  • Débat 1 : Deep sea mineral resources

In 1970, the United Nations declared the mineral resources of the seabed as a ‘common heritage of humanity’. The function of the International Seabed Authority is to regulate the exploration and exploitation of these resources. Why are these resources so coveted? What are the environments they are in like? What do you think, should we exploit these resources?

After a brief introduction, the issues around these resources will be discussed by experts with different points of view !

Speakers :

  • Jozée SARRAZIN, ecology researcher at the Laboratoire Environnement Profond (deep sea laboratory), Ifremer
  • Aurélie SPADONE, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
  • Clément CHAZOT, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)

 

  • Débat 2 :  Marine genetic resources

All species contain genetic material which may be of potential interest for biotechnological applications, particularly in the fields of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and biofuels. Species that live under extremes of temperature, pressure or low oxygen can provide opportunities for new discoveries. The question of the exploitation of marine genetic resources in the high seas is divisive. Some of the most technologically advanced states defend free access to them. Developing countries see them as a common heritage of humanity, implying a sharing of the profits derived from their exploitation. What do you think ?
After a brief introduction, the issues around these resources will be discussed by experts with different points of view !

Intervenants :

  • Gilles BOEUF, Member of France’s national ethics advisory committee for life and health sciences
  • Anne-Emmanuelle KERVELLA, Head of the international relations department, Station Biologique de Roscoff (Roscoff biological station)
  • Sabrina SLIMANI, Business lawyer, Ifremer

 

  • Débat 3 : Conservation and exploitation in the fishing sector

It is widely accepted that fishing is the activity with the greatest impact on biodiversity in the high seas. Including fisheries in a new international legal instrument is the subject of a growing consensus, but how this can be achieved remains unclear. In particular, some states assert that fisheries are sufficiently supervised through the existing systems.
How can we reconcile the issues of conservation and fishing on the high seas ? After a brief introduction, issues around fisheries and conservation on the high seas will be discussed by experts with different points of view !

Speakers :

  • François SIMARD, Consultant
  • François CHARTIER, ocean and oil campaigner at Greenpeace France
  • Michel GOUJON, director at Orthongel

 

  • Summary of the 3 debates

Speakers :

  • Serge SÉGURA, ambassador in charge of the oceans
  • Janique ETIENNE, project manager, French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM)
  • Cyrille BARNERIAS, director of European and international relations, French Biodiversity Agency

What happened during the One Ocean Summit?

This closing conference will be a time to share with the public the solutions and initiatives resulting from three days of international meetings based on our oceans.

2 PHOTO EXHIBITIONS

  • Preserving the oceans: an essential challenge for today’s societies

An exhibition of photographs by students from the French and Quebec marine universities in the France-Quebec institute for scientific cooperation in support of the maritime sector (IFQM). The exhibition highlights photographs of students working in marine sciences and technologies at French and Quebec universities that are members of IFQM. The central theme of the photo competition, which ran through the autumn of 2021, was ‘preserving the oceans: an essential challenge for today’s societies’, divided into several categories.

For each of the categories, two photographs were selected by an exceptional jury made up of leading professional photographers, Laurent Ballesta and Mario Cyr, as well as experts in scientific culture, Céline Liret from Océanopolis and Olivier Grant from Biodome. Encouraged through social networks, the public also selected one photograph per category that was voted the public’s favourite.

Accessible from the 8th of february to the 8th of may in the gardens of Océanopolis.
Free access from the 8th to the 11th of february during the One Ocean Summit.

 

  • Amer – Fighting ocean grabbing for the common good

The exhibition by the argos collective on ocean grabbing and the battles to preserve the common good that our oceans represent (patroned by François Gabart) continues its own journey, having been presented on the quais de Scène in Paris as well as at the IUCN congress in Marseille.

After making a first documentary series on climate refugees broadcast by the world press and published by MIT, then a series on the ecological footprint and impact of carbon in the world, Amer is a long-term work, started four years ago, focusing on the oceans and its man-made devastation: plastic pollution, overfishing, mass tourism, mining and global warming.

An exhibition organised by the argos collective, the French Biodiversity Agency (OFB) and Océanopolis

Accessible from the 8th of february to the 8th of march on the promenade of the Moulin Blanc marina, near Océanopolis.
