The Blue Economy Summit Tracks This year we are delving into three main tracks

Blue Investment

The valuable Blue Economy ($2.4 trillion annually) struggles with financing for sustainable businesses, requiring innovative solutions like blue bonds to gain wider adoption.

Blue Tech

The fast-growing blue tech market ($58.6 billion by 2025), with innovations like AI fishing, needs to bridge the gap between promising ideas and practical solutions for ocean sustainability.


Climate Change

Our oceans absorb vast amounts of CO2 but face warming, acidification, and rising sea levels, requiring solutions like mangrove restoration to protect coastlines.
