Global ocean governance needs to address the sustainability challenges of the 21 century. This requires linking natural and social science knowledge with that of decision-makers and ocean users in
business and civil society in order to deliver science and knowledge to the governance process for more timely and effective adaptive management. There is thus a large number of individual and
organisational actors engaged in the fields of knowledge generation and governance and management relating to the global oceans. Partners of the recently founded Future Ocean Alliance association ( understand effective ocean governance as requiring an operational global social network which effectively links ocean governance actors across sectors, issues, regions, disciplines and interest groups.
This session starts with presentations setting the stage in outlining current challenges in ocean governance and the role of knowledge in that. This will be followed by a world café type of participatory exercise in which all will be invited to engage in a digitally supported systematic
mapping of ocean governance actors and their linkages. The developing global network will be made visually available during the course of the conference. Two presentations after the world café exercise will address communication and informatics related to the functioning and understanding of such global networks. A final discussion panel will examine first results and set the scene for building a global alliance for ocean governance.
