Ocean acidification, caused by ocean uptake of nearly 30% of CO2 emission to-date, is impacting ocean ecosystems, fisheries and dependant societies in waters surrounding Nordic nations. High-level speakers and science experts will look to raise ambition for emissions reduction towards achieving the Paris Agreement, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
