One Ocean Week 2023

In April 2023, the Norwegian Tall Ship Statsraad Lehmkuhl returns to its hometown Bergen from The One Ocean Expedition, a circumnavigation of the globe. For almost twenty months, Statsraad Lehmkuhl has sailed over 55 000 nautical miles, visited 36 ports worldwide and built new knowledge about the ocean. 

The homecoming to Bergen launched the One Ocean Week – seven days of conferences, meetings, workshops, and different activities in Bergen, all focusing on creating the ocean we need for the future we want.

One Ocean Week 2023 aims to create attention and share knowledge about the crucial role of the ocean for a sustainable development in a global perspective.

One Ocean Week 2023 is open for everyone that is interested in conserving and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources.

Welcome to Bergen in April 2023!
