From 8 to 11 May 2017, over 130 experts on the Wadden Sea met in Tønder at the 14th International Scientific Wadden Sea Symposium (ISWSS), organized by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, the Danish Wadden Sea National Park, and Tønder Municipality. In a plenary-style conference, the scientists presented research findings and discussed methods as well as research topics. The focal subject of the symposium was the Trilateral Research Agenda (TRA), a blueprint for necessary future trilateral research regarding the Wadden Sea World Heritage and surrounding area through the lens of multiple disciplines. The Agenda will be presented and adopted by political representatives of Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands at the 13th Trilateral Governmental Conference in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, in May 2018. The symposium was attended by guests from two delegations from the Republic of Korea: delegates of the Korea Marine Environment Management Cooperation and representatives of NGOs concerned with the Getbol tidal flat.
