The Global Conference on Oceans, Climate and Security (GCOCS), to be held May 21-23, 2012 in Boston, will raise the awareness level of the threat of climate change to our oceans and the consequent threat to our human and national security; identify and prioritize the knowledge gaps in science and technology which inhibit understanding, response and adaptation to future threats, and; generate comprehensive human security policy and governance recommendations reflecting the climate, ocean, and security continuum. Over three days, GCOCS attendees will explore complex, cross-sector topics and strategies through interactive methods such as multi-disciplinary plenary and World Café sessions.
