Blue Climate Initiative held its first online workshop for its six Working Groups on July 7th and 8th 2020. The Workshop brought together scientists and oceans experts to share perspectives on the most transformational opportunities for impactful change in the six thematic areas of its Working Groups: Energy & Marine Transportation, Food & Nutrition, Health & Wellbeing, Biodiversity & Nature Based Solutions, Mineral & Genetic Resources, and Sustainable Tourism.
"One of the early dreams with this initiative was to bring together some of the world’s greatest minds on ocean-related issues to address climate change and other environmental crises we are facing. If this is any indication, we are making great progress. The event far surpassed expectations in terms of the quality of materials, creativity and robustness of the discussion. We are thrilled with the spirit of collaboration and deep sense of purpose of those participating.”
