Marine Debris and Sargassum side events at All-Atlantic 2021 Conference

18 June 2021

The GEO Blue Planet EU Office was part of an event that gathered high-level representatives and marine stakeholders to advance R&I cooperation for a sustainable Atlantic Ocean.

The GEO Blue Planet EU Office, supported by EU4OceanObs, hosted two side events during the All-Atlantic 2021 R&I for a Sustainable Ocean High-level Ministerial and Stakeholders Conference. Organised in collaboration with GEO Blue Planet key project partners and working group contributors, the side events brought experts and stakeholders together to present and discuss challenges and opportunities for addressing Sargassum and marine debris across the Atlantic Ocean and its coastal areas. These are two serious growing problems affecting the health of the Atlantic Ocean, the blue economy (fisheries, tourism, etc.), and the lives of coastal communities.
