So very excited today – because I just received my approval from the BBNJ conference secretariat to attend as an ISA representatives to the BBNJ conference, being held in New York from 4-17 September 2018.
I have even received my individual letters that iterates the details of my approved registration, including guidance to obtain my temporary UN grounds pass.
This is an important element in my Fulbright study as well as my work on marine plastics with the GoJelly project financed by Horizon2020 – and it opens the door for my observational study and in-depth interviews!
I have spent the morning finalizing the interview guide, and looking over documents from the BBNJ Presidents Aid to Disussions for inspiration!
Only 27 days left before we leave for Texas!
