Seas and oceans produce 50% of the oxygen we breathe and are amongst the Earth’s largest carbon sinks. That’s why it’s no surprise that ClimateLaunchpad’s newest theme track is: Blue Economy.
Open webinar: Innovating together for a sustainable Blue Economy
If calculated in monetary terms, the ocean would be the 7th world largest economy at USD $2.4 trillion.
So what could that mean for innovation and entrepreneurship?
Join Maria Loloni, Maritime Programme Lead at Climate-KIC, in an expert session where she will take you through the basics of the Blue Economy, the challenges and opportunities facing the sector, and hear from special guest entrepreneurs from our network who will share their experiences in starting a climate-friendly Blue Economy business.
Everyone is welcome and it is free to join, so share it with anyone that may be interested.
