On this occasion, Emilie Gaillard, general coordinator of the Normandy Chair for Peace, made a presentation prepared with Professor Ariel GALLARDO (Chilean oceanographer) on the theme: “the time for global ocean governance has come: recognizing the rights of marine ecosystems to protect the future of the future”.
