Immersed in Costa Rica

Let’s Be Nice to the Ocean coordinator Rémi Parmentier travelled in January 2024 to San José, Costa Rica, at the request of the Government of that country to form part of a task force in support of the Immersed In Change conference, which will take place outside the country’s capital, San José on 7-8 June 2024, exactly one year before the 2025 Nice Ocean Conference organized by the United Nations in France.

The two-day meeting started with presentations by our partner Loreley Picourt, Executive Director of the Ocean & Climate Platform, and by Rémi Parmentier on the outcome of the survey of NGOs expectations, which they coordinated in 2023, as well as on plans in the framework of the Let’s Be Nice to the Ocean initiative. Some fifteen people representing Costa Rica’s Foreign Affairs and Environment Ministries, and several international and Costa Rican NGOs took part in the meeting, including our partners from Dona Bertarelli Philanthropy.

Together with the Ocean & Climate Platform, we also filed a proposal for a high-level event at the conference in Costa Rica in June 2024.

Should you plan to attend the conference in San José, it will be an opportunity to interact with Rémi and Loreley; with our colleague Cyrielle Lâm, and our project manager Isabel Leal Maldonado, as well as representatives from our partners.
