At the dawn of the United Nations Conference on the Oceans in 2025, the protection of our marine environment is becoming increasingly urgent. The effects of climate change are exacerbating the challenges faced by our oceans and coastlines, such as sea level rise, ocean acidification and extreme weather events. These phenomena have significant impacts on marine ecosystems and coastal communities, and threaten the sustainable use of marine resources.
In keeping with its commitment, the HUB Institute is hosting in collaboration with the Center for Sea Rise Solutions chaired by Janelle Kellman, former mayor of Sausalito (California, USA). From 8.30 am to 2 pm, this forum will be punctuated by discussions and exchanges about the current challenges and opportunities regarding the protection of our oceans and seas. We will overview topics such as where to invest efficiently, how to handle climate risks in the field of insurance, the sector of Ocean Tech Start-ups led by innovation for a sustainable future and the issue of Water Governance for and with our Territories.
