The increasing use of the seas is getting more and more problematic in view of the decline in marine biodiversity and against the background of the energy and climate crisis. Current EU guidelines and strategies as well as the two UN decades provide an essential framework. In all countries, we have to undertake considerable joint efforts to improve the state of the seas, to implement efficient protected areas for species and habitats and at the same time to enable sustainable use of marine resources. But how can we get from knowledge to action? With the conduction of the PMC "how to stop biodiversity loss - from knowledge to action", we would like to give an important impetus to this discussion. The in-person conference at the OZEANEUM Stralsund, starting with a panel discussion, will be structured around plenary sessions and workshops on the above-mentioned key topics.
