The Economist Group’s Eighth Annual World Ocean Summit Virtual Week

The Economist Group’s Eighth Annual World Ocean Summit Virtual Week

In its eighth year, The Economist’s World Ocean Summit 2021 is going virtual for the first time and for this year only, the event is free-to-attend. The virtual week offers the opportunity to access 30 hours of highly curated content over five days, and the chance to make meaningful connections no matter where you are in the world.

We continue the focus on high-level conversation and policymaking in plenary sessions as well as industry focus in six dedicated tracks: aquaculture, fishing, energy, plastics, shipping, and tourism.

In addition, participants will be able to engage across sectors to explore the role the ocean plays in tackling climate change, enhancing biodiversity, protecting coastal communities, and restoring ecosystems.

Register now to join over 5,000 participants and 130 speakers across the week, in our mission to accelerate a sustainable ocean economy.

To restore the world's coral reefs, we need support from all sectors. From individuals and communities to governments and industries, collaboration is the key.
