Biennial Ocean Visions Summit & Call for abstracts

April 4-6, 2023, at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta or online

„Summit participants will share and discuss cutting-edge advancements in ocean sciences, engineering, policy, governance, and economics that support trajectory-changing solutions to the dangerous climate impacts on the ocean within 7-10 years.“

Ocean Vision is currently soliciting abstracts. Abstracts should focus on existing and emerging problems at the intersection of the ocean and climate crises, and current and potential solutions that can be effectively implemented – as well as anticipating newer problems as these crises intensify. Abstracts should fall within one or more of the five program tracks:

  • Ocean-Based Contributions to Global Decarbonization
  • Ocean-Based Contributions to Carbon Dioxide Removal
  • Ocean Ecosystem Regeneration
  • Human Adaptation to a Changing Ocean
  • Building a Global Community of Solvers at the Ocean-Climate Nexus

The deadline for submitting abstracts is October 26, 2022. The full meeting program and schedule will be published in early February.


VERGE – The Climate Tech Event

Oct 25 – 27, 2022, San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, CA

VERGE organises this climate tech event to provide deeper, focused learning and networking experiences for participants within their specific market. Various participants — from business, government, solution providers and startups — working together to address the climate crisis across six strategic areas: clean energy, sustainable transportation, carbon removal, regenerative food systems, net-zero buildings and the startup ecosystem.


Ocean Visions Summit 2023: Innovating Solutions at the Ocean-Climate Nexus

April 4-6, 2023, in Atlanta, Georgia

The next Ocean Visions Summit will be held from April 4-6, 2023, in Atlanta, Georgia. This will predominantly be an in-person event, but with a modified virtual component. Contributions to the Summit program can be made by applying to chair a session within one of the five tracks: 1) Ocean-Based Contributions to Global Decarbonization, 2) Ocean-Based Contributions to Carbon Dioxide Removal, 3) Ocean Ecosystem Regeneration, 4) Human Adaptation to a Changing Ocean, and 5) Building a Global Community of Solvers at the Ocean-Climate Nexus. Applications should be submitted by 9/30/2022, Ocean Visions will notify candidates by 10/21/2022.


Microalgae CDR Road Map Workshop

October 13 4:00 – 6:00 PM PDT (UTC-7) or October 20 8:00 – 10:00 AM PDT (UTC-7)

Ocean Visions is developing a new road map on microalgae cultivation for carbon sequestration and is seeking experts in relevant fields to support the process by identifying information gaps and first-order priorities. Building on an existing set of five ocean-based CDR road maps, the microalgae road map is intended to catalyze global engagement on research and development. We will hold two scoping workshops, one at a Europe-friendly time and one at an Asia/Australia-friendly time. You may nominate yourself or someone else to participate in the workshops.


Nature-based Solutions to Global Challenges Foundation Course

September 2022 & January 2023 organised by Nature-based Solutions Initiative

The course is an introduction to NbS for professionals working in a range of sectors. It will provide participants with knowledge that will enhance future work on nature-based solutions. The organizers are initially offering this course as an online course over 8 weeks in September 2022 and again in January 2023, and intend to deliver it as a 3-5 day face-to-face event as soon as it is feasible (e.g., September 2023).


This is CDR: MRV for Ocean-Based CDR Methods

Tue, September 20, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT

This Is CDR will welcome NOAA Research Oceanographer Dr. Jessica Cross to discuss the challenges associated with measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) of ocean-based CDR methods, and how we can seek to address them in a climate-relevant time-frame.


ACCSESS Open Oslo Event – CCS as a key to unlocking urban carbon neutrality

22 September, 09:00-17:15; Oslo (Norway) and online

On behalf of the ACCSESS project, Hafslund Oslo Celsio and SINTEF welcomes European policy makers and representatives from cities and industries to Oslo for an open event. Join them for a conversation about the challenges and opportunities associated with curbing industrial CO2 emissions, and how they relate to climate adaptation and mitigation plans for European cities.


IEAGHG Webinar: Blue hydrogen: Beyond the plant gate

Tuesday 13 September 2022, 15.00-16.00 BST

The primary objective of this study is to review the comparative analysis of blue hydrogen production (that is hydrogen derived from fossil fuels and associated CCS) technologies from oil and oil-based feedstocks as well as the supply chain implication. Further, this study includes techno-economic and life cycle assessments of different technology production configurations in regions that have access to oil resources and potential for the deployment of CCS infrastructure at scale.


2nd Annual Conference on Carbon Removal Law and Policy: The Role of Domestic Law and Policy in Regulating and Facilitating CDR

September 27-28, 2022, to be held virtually

Registration is open! This year’s conference will focus on the role of domestic law (throughout the world) in the carbon dioxide removal sector. It is organisator’s hope to bring together speakers from the corporate, government, NGO and academic sectors to explore lessons learned to date, as well as to discuss interstices in legal and regulatory frameworks, and approaches that can help to streamline governance mechanisms, while protecting the interests of all stakeholders. This event is co-convened by the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy, the Environmental Policy & Culture Program at Northwestern University, and the Pritzker School of Law at Northwestern University.
