About Life Below Water 2017

UN Global Goals

The City of Malmö invites you to join us at Life Below Water, an international conference on local implementation of UN goal 14 to be held 11–13 October 2017.

Why Life Below Water?

In June, Sweden and Fiji are co-hosting 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 will take 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 will be hosting Life Below Water 2017, an international conference that aims to help boost local implementation of UN goal 14.    

The City of Malmö will be participating in a number of side events and seminars in conjunction with The Ocean Conference, together with the Swedish Government and international organisations.

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.
