Launching October 2021 - The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and ITN Productions Industry News will be co-creators of a third news-style programme, exploring the health of our ocean.
With 2021 marking the beginning of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, Resilient Ocean will explore the importance of preserving the future health and resilience of our ocean resources through scientific advances and sustainable management. The programme will promote knowledge and information about decarbonisation, offshore renewables and high seas governance; showcase the latest innovative technologies driving the sector; shine a spotlight on the myriad of career opportunities for the next generation and engage the wider marine community with the challenges and opportunities for 2021 and beyond including post-COVID-19 recovery, COP26 and the path to net zero and Brexit implications.
Anchored by an ITN Productions presenter, the programme will premiere at Oceans of Knowledge 2021 (an IMarEST virtual event) on 26th October 2021 to an audience from over 50 countries and will combine key sector interviews, informative news items and sponsored editorial profiles from organisations addressing some of the fundamental challenges facing the industry today. The programme will form part of an extensive communications campaign featuring IMarEST members and professional partners.
Gwynne Lewis, Chief Executive, IMarEST said: “As we mark a very crucial time for the ocean with the start of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, we are thrilled to be partnering with ITN Productions again to engage the wider marine community in the challenges and opportunities for 2021 and beyond as we seek to build a more resilient ocean.”
Nina Harrison, Head of Industry News, ITN Productions said “We are delighted to partner once again with IMarEST to produce a programme that amplifies the challenges facing our oceans and marine professionals. We hope the programme provides a framework to encourage actions to sustainably manage the oceans now and in the future, to preserve and improve long- term ocean health.”
