7th Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS)
The 7th Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS) will convene in Paris, 20-22 Nov 2019.
Mark your calendars for the next SOS – the annual gathering of the global ocean business community dedicated to advancing private sector action on ocean sustainable development, organized by WOC – the global Blue Economy Business Organization.
With the theme of “Investing in Ocean Futures: Finance and Innovation for the Blue Economy”, the SOS 2019 will be the foremost international ocean business conference dedicated to investment and innovation for sustainable development.
Over 2.5 days, SOS 2019 delegates will explore a range of cross-sectoral topics, strategies and solutions through plenary and parallel sessions and workshops. The working format will help identify clear, realistic pathways to achieving shared objectives for sustainable ocean use. A formal agenda is under development by our Program Committee.
Since 2010, the Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS) has been bringing together leaders from the diverse ocean business community – shipping, fisheries, oil and gas, aquaculture, offshore renewables, tourism, seabed mining, marine technology, law, insurance, finance, etc. – as well as ocean stakeholders from the government, inter-governmental, science and environment communities – to focus on industry-driven action on “Corporate Ocean Responsibility”.
