The World Ocean Summit is an annual global event bringing together the widest cross-section of the ocean community from business and finance to governments, national and international policy-makers, civil society and academia.

The AIVP is a media partner of this event.

Economist Impact will celebrate the 10th anniversary with the return to a physical event in Lisbon, Portugal, a city (and country) at the forefront of sustainable ocean thinking and practice.

The summit is designed to inspire bold thinking and new partnerships, and to trigger effective action to develop a sustainable ocean economy. It aims to change the way business is done in the ocean.

This year’s summit will focus progress on the biggest challenges facing the ocean: climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution. High-level policy discussions will remain at the heart of the plenary sessions. The event will focus on marine industries, including shipping, fisheries, aquaculture, energy and tourism, and this year’s agenda will include cross-sectoral sessions to harness synergies and encourage cross-sectoral engagement.
