The second United Nations Ocean Conference begins today in Lisbon, bringing together representatives from countries and organisations from around the world to mobilise partnerships, increase investment and adopt solutions to reverse the decline in ocean health.
Aimed at strengthening its role in preserving the Ocean and giving visibility to the work it has been doing for almost a decade in promoting scientific knowledge and public awareness of the importance of the ocean for human prosperity and sustainable development, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation will be present – as the host or participant – in 18 of the Conference’s events throughout the week.
The Foundation’s participation begins today, 27 June, at the One Sustainable Ocean room of the Portugal Pavilion, with a session dedicated to startups in the area of blue biotechnology, in which the experience of the Blue Bio Value acceleration programme will be shared. This session will be followed by the presentation of the Foundation’s new project: the Gulbenkian Blue Carbon project.
