Focusing on Satoumi coastal seascapes, the symposium will feature speakers from Japan and abroad presenting case studies and good practices for restoring vulnerable ecosystems. It is co-organised in partnership with the Ocean Policy Research Institute and the Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ).

The symposium series aims to build momentum towards the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration for coastal ecosystems, creating a network of stakeholders for Satoumi restoration.
