Introduction

As the climate continues to change, our beautiful planet continues to suffer. Natural disasters have become more intense and frequent and therefore something must be done to improve the situation.

Origin

Taiwan is surrounded by sea on all sides. Therefore, Ocean is an important economic and cultural asset to Taiwan. With the economic development, the current situation of marine resources is facing problems, including over-utilization of fishery resources, habitat destruction and pollution of marine ecological environment. 


To promote exchanges and cooperation among Taiwan and International marine environment organizations, Taiwan Philanthropic Study held “2019 UNINGO in TAIWAN-International forum on ocean sustainability” co-organized with National Museum of Marine Science & Technology. The theme of the conference is Ocean sustainability and the conference aims to focus on contemporary sustainable issues on Ocean, which vigorously draw international attention. Ocean sustainability series will not only cover global Ocean sustainability but also domestic practices so that worldwide NGOs may exchange local experiences with interested unites.
