World Ocean Summit & Expo 2023

The World Ocean Summit celebrates its tenth anniversary this month from February 27th to March 1st in Lisbon—a city (and country) at the forefront of sustainable ocean thinking and practice. As we return to an in-person event, the three-day programme welcomes more than 180 speakers and 1,500 attendees who will examine the greatest challenges facing the ocean: climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.

Speakers and delegates from conservation, finance, shipping, fishing and aquaculture, tourism and renewable energy provide a diversity of perspectives and expertise to enrich your organisation. This year, two new session-tracks are being launched: “Cities and the ocean” and “Investment hub”.
