IPMEN 2025 Conference Announcement

Following the successful IPMEN 2023 Conference held on Vancouver Island BC Canada, the IPMEN Conference Committee has great pleasure in announcing that the 2025 IPMEN Conference will be hosted by the Taiwan National Academy of Marine Research in the city of Kaohsiung, Taiwan in April 2025.

Conference Theme: TEK Perspective to Ocean Literacy Dialogue – A Voice from Asia & Pacific

Conference Venue: Kaohsiung, Taiwan 

Conference Dates: April 22 to 26, 2025 

Just by way of background, IPMEN evolved out of the One Ocean Marine Forum (OOMF) held in Hawai’i in July 2005 so it is fair to say – It was twenty years ago today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play.

So, join us in Kaohsiung as we celebrate 20 years of fostering a fuller understanding of the ocean’s value and continue IPMEN’s work towards creating informed and responsible communities who seek to conserve, manage and restore the integrity of ocean ecosystems in the Pacific.
