About Life Below Water 2017

UN Global Goals

The City of Malmö organised Life Below Water, an international conference on local implementation of UN goal 14 on the 11–13 October 2017.

When and where:

Life Below Water was held at Quality Hotel View in Hyllie, Malmö, on the 11-13 October.

Why Life Below Water?

In June 2017, Sweden and Fiji are co-hosted a high-level United Nations Conference to support the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development. The conference took place in New York, on 5–9 June 2017, coinciding with World Oceans Day.

To follow up the high-level conference in New York, the City of Malmö  hosted Life Below Water 2017, an international conference that aimed to help boost local implementation of UN goal 14.    

Local initiatives are critical to the fulfilment of the UN goal and Malmö is one of the cities at the forefront, demonstrating how working towards sustainability generates local development and benefits society.
