The Summit

Welcome to the first Blue Info Summit

2021 marks the start of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. In this context, the Blue Info Summit seeks to make a relevant contribution to the debate on such topics as:


  • Cooperation between countries and between entities participating in the blue economy;
  • The importance of science and innovation for creating value from oceans, seas and rivers;
  • The achievement of an integrated vision of all bodies of water and their respective coasts;
  • The impact of the pandemic and the priorities for recovery;
  • The value of food from the sea and the path to sustainability of the oceans;
  • The transformation of the economy of the sea to achieve decarbonization;


Blue economy leaders from countries on four continents will share their views on the future of oceans, seas and rivers. In a world undergoing great transformation, voluntary commitments are essential to achieving the goals of SDG 14 – Life Below Water. During this event, we will promote increasing voluntary commitments and explain how simple it is to submit them.
