World Ocean Summit

Inspiring ocean solutions

The World Ocean Summit is an annual global event bringing together the widest cross-section of the ocean community from business and finance to governments, national and international policy-makers, civil society and academia. Economist Impact will celebrate the 10th anniversary with the return to a physical event in Lisbon, Portugal, a city (and country) at the forefront of sustainable ocean thinking and practice.

The summit is designed to inspire bold thinking and new partnerships, and to trigger effective action to develop a sustainable ocean economy. It aims to change the way business is done in the ocean.

This year, the summit will steer progress by addressing the greatest challenges facing the ocean: climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. High-level policy discussions will continue to be at the heart of plenary sessions. We will retain the focus on marine industries including shipping, fishing, aquaculture, energy and tourism and this year the agenda will feature cross-industry sessions to leverage synergies and encourage cross-sector engagement.
