WRIC-Oceans has found the perfect venue – The Lisbon Oceanarium.
Opened in 1998, the Oceanarium was the centrepiece of the 20th Century’s last World Fair, themed ’The Oceans, a Heritage for the Future’, and eternally binds Lisbon to the Oceans.
The Oceanarium continuously develops new educational activities, focused on today’s environmental challenges. This is one of the reasons why the Oceanarium supports multiple scientific research projects, most of which focus on conservation of biodiversity and a sustainable use of the oceans.
The Congress takes place in the new Edifício do Mar building, which includes an area dedicated to temporary exhibits, the Mar da Palha auditorium and Tejo restaurant.
