We are honoured to be involved with this year’s COP28 UAE for the session – A Regenerative Blue Economy as Means to Harmonizing Climate Action: Post-2030 framework beyond sustainability.

The concept of a “regenerative blue economy” has emerged, prioritizing both sustainability and economic prosperity while actively seeking to protect and rejuvenate our marine and coastal ecosystems. This approach extends beyond maintaining the status quo, aiming to breathe new life into our natural oceanic resources, empower local communities, bringing together public and private sector, and recognize the interconnectedness of the sea and climate.

Together with the University of Genoa, we will be hosting an event at the United Nations SDG Pavilion where insights on this “regenerative blue economy” and its aim to address ocean challenges will be uncovered by influential ocean advocates. The session will be moderated by Youth Ocean Champion Bodhi Patil and feature an inspiring discussion between Vienna Eleuteri of Water Revolution Foundation, Adriana del Borghi from University of Genoa, Michela Gallo of the Centre for the Development of Products Sustainability (CESISP), & Paul Holthus from World Ocean Council.

Date & Time: 9 December 2023, 16:45 – 17:45 UTC+4
Location: SDG Pavilion, Blue Zone, Expo City Dubai UAE & Online

We encourage all Revolutionaries to join for what promises to be an inspiring discussion on the vision beyond 2030 and the necessary steps to establish a cohesive framework, guiding principles, and appropriate tools for a new paradigm of development.
