  • Session II – Atlases, the UN Decade & the SDGs: aiming to explore how our CWA’s can contribute to and link in with the UN Decade of Ocean Sciences and the Sustainability Goals

  • Session III – Sharing your Atlas with the World: aiming to explore how Atlases can share their content more effectively and make connections to the OceanInfoHub project
