Please join us for this Blue Talk, organized as a prelude to the United Nations Oceans Conference, featuring:

  • Barbara Block, Stanford, Hopkins Marine Station

  • Sergio Cavalho, Permanent Mission of Portugal to the UN

  • Tiago Pitta e Cunha, Oceano Azul Foundation

  • Stephan de Morais, Indico Capital Partners

  • Jennifer Dianto Kemmerly, Monterey Bay Aquarium

    The Ocean Conference, co-hosted by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, comes at a critical time as the world is seeking to address the many of the deep-rooted problems of our societies laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic and which will require major structural transformations and common shared solutions that are anchored in the SDGs. To mobilize action, the Conference will seek to propel much needed science-based innovative solutions aimed at starting a new chapter of global ocean action. Solutions for a sustainably managed ocean involve green technology and innovative uses of marine resources. They also include addressing the threats to health, ecology, economy and governance of the ocean - acidification, marine litter and pollution, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, and the loss of habitats and biodiversity.
