The World Ocean Council (WOC) Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS) has become the premier forum for advancing global industry leadership and collaboration on ocean sustainable development, science and stewardship. Following the success of the SOS in Halifax (2017), Rotterdam (2016), Singapore (2015), Washington D.C. (2013) and Belfast (2010), the SOS 2018 convened at the New World Millennium Hotel in Hong Kong on 14-16 November, with the theme of “Ocean Sustainable Development – Connecting Asia and the World”.
The SOS 2018 Summit Report has now been released and is accessible to SOS 2018 Delegates and WOC Members at this link. Photographs and presentation slides, as well as a full list of participants, are also available here. Please do not circulate these files, as they are provided only to registered participants and WOC Members.
In addition, mark your calendars for the Sustainable Ocean Summit 2019, to be held in Paris on 20-22 November! With the theme of “Investing in Ocean Futures: Finance and Innovation for the Blue Economy”, the SOS 2019 will be the foremost international business conference dedicated to investment and innovation for ocean sustainable development.
