The 4th Blue Planet Symposium
We live on a Blue Planet, and Earth’s waters benefit many sectors of society. The future of our Blue Planet is increasingly dependent on the services delivered by marine and coastal waters. The conservation of these services relies on the advancement of effective, evidence-based decisions for sustainable development.
The 4th GEO Blue Planet Symposium served as a forum to discuss ocean and coastal information needs for sustainable development, Blue Growth, and societal awareness. The symposium brought together producers of ocean and coastal data and current and potential users of that information, who shared their experience with the audience.
The 4th Blue Planet Symposium was held in Toulouse, South of France, from 4 to 6 July 2018.
