The Economist Events hosts its third World Ocean Summit in Lisbon (Cascais). The summit is a leading event for bringing together decision makers from the world of business, science, NGOs and government to discuss the future of a sustainable ocean economy. The objective of this third World Ocean Summit is to explore the opportunity for business, governments, and the international ocean community that blue growth presents, identifying practical and realistic solutions to the tension between economic development and environmental sustainability.
