The One Ocean Summit took place last week in Brest, France.
Over two days, around 40 heads of state and government discussed and addressed 4 main themes: the protection of marine ecosystems, the fight against pollution, the fight against climate change, and ocean governance. This summit kicks off what is expected to be a year full of conferences and international conventions focused on the health and conservation of marine ecosystems and the sustainable development of the Blue Economy sector.
