Mission Restore our Ocean and Waters Annual Forum

Calling all ocean lovers:

Join us for the first-ever Annual Forum of the EU Mission “Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030”!

We will together take stock of the first year of implementation of the Mission, showcasing the first portfolio of projects and actions to achieve the Mission’s objectives. The event will focus on the commitments to implement the Mission and illustrate concrete measures and actions to protect and restore marine and freshwater ecosystems and biodiversity, boost coastal resilience, eliminate pollution, and make the blue economy climate-neutral and circular, as well as recommend further necessary initiatives.

The Mission Forum will bring together key stakeholders to:

  • Generate broad buy-in for the Mission, gathering the first communities of actors and boosting further adhesions to the Mission Charter;
  • Mobilise actions and measures to contribute to 2030 targets, across the four lighthouses;
  • Showcase concrete examples of programmes and initiatives from Member States, regions, cities, and other stakeholders, and give visibility to the first projects portfolio supported by EU programmes.

You are cordially invited to participate. The in-person event will take place Friday, 17 February 2023 at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels.
