With unprecedented political, economic and climate challenges on the horizon, the need to accelerate the green transition grows only more imperative.
This is perhaps particularly true of Blue Economy sectors, which are fully intertwined with the natural environment.
Tomorrow.Oceans aims to bring together those with the insights and experience to advance this essential sector. The 2022 program provided full focus on three key areas of action: Blue Economic Activity, Marine Environmental Challenges, and Openness to Civil Society.
Within the framework of the Smart City Expo World Congress, Tomorrow.Oceans was held in Barcelona, a city whose blue economy sectors employ 15,000 people and generates an annual turnover of €3.75 billion – an ideal location to connect with sector experts and soak up the wealth of knowledge on offer.
