Lisbon will host the second UN Ocean Conference
Event to take place in the Portuguese capital on June 2020.

In June 2017, after the inaugural Ocean Conference, the Portuguese Government informed the UN Oceans conference that Portugal was whiling to organize the second edition of the event. It was now confirmed by the Portuguese Ministry of the Sea that the event will take place in Lisbon in June 2020.

This means the Portuguese will host two of the most important marine events in back-to-back years. As previously announced by the Council of the European Union, Lisbon has also been chosen to host the European Maritime Day in 2019.
