The OCEAN FORUM is an initiative of the Tara Ocean Foundation to highlight the work of those who are inspired, committed and mobilised for the Ocean. Our idea is to bring together all those who show the Ocean in a new light and make it accessible to all.

During the forum, you will :

- take part in awareness-raising workshops open to both children and adults

- ask all your questions to scientists

- discover the work of artists inspired by the Ocean
