The National Oceanography Centre are proud to be a supporting association of the 10th annual World Ocean Summit, taking place in Lisbon later this month.
Economist Impact’s World Ocean Summit is a global event bringing together the ocean community from business and finance to governments, policy-makers, civil society and academia.
Our role at the National Oceanography Centre is to combat challenges facing the ocean through scientific understanding and education, which is only possible through collaboration with national and international partners.
In the race to tackle the climate and nature emergency, we know humanity has no better friend than the ocean. This year, the summit will steer progress by addressing three great challenges facing the ocean: climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution.
NOC’s Associate Director for Innovation, Huw Gullick, will be speaking on ‘Technology to restore Ocean Health’, on the first day of the conference.
Several NOC scientists and staff will also be in attendance, including Head of Public Affairs, David Boot, and Partnerships Manager, Holly Evans.
Holly said “We are delighted to be a supporting association of the World Ocean Summit. It is crucial that we all work together to find solutions to the issues that affect our environment, our health and our future, and events like this are key to shared insight and action. We look forward to seeing you in Lisbon”.
The World Ocean Summit is taking place in Lisbon 27 February–1 March 2023.
Individuals, foundations, and corporations all have an important role to play in understanding our changing ocean, so as a collective we can play our part in helping to restore it.
