Since its foundation in 1972, IOI has trained more than 2000 Ocean professionals, contributing towards a growing global network of trained and empowered leaders fully conversant with the latest developments in Ocean Governance, achieving a critical mass of IOI-trained professionals and practitioners. The IOI Alumni CPD Series aims to bring the latest knowledge and insights to the attention of our Alumni and to contribute meaningfully to the ongoing discourse on Ocean Governance and sustainable development.


Building on the webinar series launched in 2023, the 2024 schedule shall continue to highlight the latest developments in the ever-evolving landscape of global challenges and opportunities. Quarterly webinars are curated to enrich the knowledge of IOI Alumni with unique perspectives on the latest developments, featuring experts who guide discussion on the intersection of Ocean Governance, sustainability, and international cooperation.


Throughout the year, the IOI CPD series shall navigate key themes in the global landscape, from the triple planetary crisis to the specific challenges faced by vulnerable countries, critical discussions on the global financial system, and the current challenges to multilateralism. The hallmark of each IOI CPD webinar is the interactive learning and exchange of views with topic experts.
