Government of Abu Dhabi Announced as Host of World Ocean Summit 2019

The 6th World Ocean Summit strives to build greater collaboration across regions and connect the world to new ideas and perspectives. The overarching theme is 'Building bridges'.

There remains much to be done to innovate and finance a sustainable blue economy. However, ensuring that this economy is rich in opportunity and representative of the myriad of perspectives and communities that build their lives around the ocean must remain at the forefront of new thinking on this topic.

The summit aims to attract 500+ attendees, representing policy, business, finance, civil society, science and academia across 40+ countries.
