This is a special talk as a fringe activity of SEA OF TEARS regional art exhibition.
The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development identified conservation and sustainable use of oceans as one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 14) and as part of a highly inter-connected agenda. For the first time, the conservation and sustainable use of the oceans are addressed with the world’s other most pressing sustainability challenges in an overarching global policy
This is also a priority in the Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy. Same applied to one of the goal sets in SDG 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
While we talk about the sea and its environmental sustainability, its security, it is trade and shipping, one forgets the People On Sea.
The panellists will bring to light the forgotten, the migrants smuggled and sold, the women and children trafficked, the refugees lost and lonesome on the boats, the fishermen trafficked and bonded, the children to be sold as brides, the families whose life and livelihood rely on the sea but without proper identification.
Who are they?
And who are the perpetrators?
We bring you their pain, their tears, their untold stories.
And last but not least, where are you in their lives and struggle? Do come and join us.
