Update on the Sustainable Oceans Conference and COVID-19

April 7, 2020

Dear Sustainable Oceans Conference attendees,

As concerns over the COVID-19 virus are increasing and some academic conferences have been cancelled, you may be wondering about the status of the 9th annual Sustainable Oceans Conference in Halifax, scheduled for September 25-26, 2020.

At this time, the Sustainable Oceans Conference is still scheduled to proceed as planned. The Co-Chairs and conference committees, along with the Sobey Fund for Oceans Advisory Board, will continue to monitor the situation. If anything changes, we will inform all conference attendees. We will also continue to post updates on the Sustainable Oceans Conference website.
