Sustainable Blue Economy – Greennovation Camp 26/10/2021

Greennovation Camps are international innovation and green economy focused online conferences that bring together local government officials, researchers, students, entrepreneurs, etc.

The theme for our fifth Greennovation Camp on 26 October is: Sustainable Blue Economy 🐳
The European Commission defines blue economy as «All economic activities related to oceans, seas and coasts. It covers a wide range of interlinked established and emerging sectors». Thus, the blue economy is linking economic exploitation of the ocean, as well as inland waters to sustainable and environmental ecosystem. It involves many industries such as oil and gas, fisheries, aquaculture, shipping, coastal tourism, offshore wind power, seabed minerals and marine biotechnology. Further, sustainable development must include cross-sectional cooperation, as public sector, county councils and municipalities are key players in realizing sustainable development and the sustainability goals.

How can private and public sector stakeholders achieve together the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14 which calls on the world to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources? How can we develop the blue economy in a sustainable way for the future?
