The degree of their littering, microbiological and chemical pollution as well as their overuse (overfishing) is constantly increasing massively.
Together with the effects of climate change, this is leading to drastic changes within marine ecosystems. Many of them threaten to lose their balance. This is a worrying fact.
The implications of this development are far-reaching. Also, and especially because the
health of us humans is closely linked to the state of our oceans
. In other words,
we need healthy oceans to stay healthy ourselves
Many people are unaware of how strong and diverse the
relationship between humankind and the ocean
is. To work against this is the goal of the 1st International Symposium on Human Health and the Ocean in a changing world. The program includes scientific lectures on the interactions between the ocean, humankind and human health. Certainly, exciting insights for all ocean lovers, now and future.
