MEDIA ALERT-Queen Quet of the Gullah/Geechee Nation Stands for the Ocean at the United Nations People | Moorbey’z Blog – The United Nations will bring together heads of states, government officials and other high level delegates, representatives from civil society organizations, the business community, intergovernmental and UN agencies as well as renowned personalities, and other ocean & marine life advocates at the Ocean Conference on 5 to 9 June to spur action to improve the state of the world’s oceans. Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) will be one of the world leaders present at the event.
With the health and sustainability of the global ocean sharply deteriorating, the Conference comes at a critical moment. Human activities are having major impacts on the ocean, affecting everything from the viability of marine habitats to the quality and temperature of the water, the health of marine life, and the continued availability of seafood. Ocean deterioration has broader implications as it affects poverty eradication, economic growth, sustainable livelihoods and employment, global food security, human health and climate regulation—many of the critical goals needed to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The Ocean Conference, the first UN conference of its kind on the issue, will focus on achieving the targets of Sustainable Development Goal 14, highlighting the need to conserve and sustainably use oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.
