Blue Deal Debate #1: Achieving Sustainability
Blue Deal Debates – Achieving Sustainability: The EU, Overfishing & MSY hosted by former chair of the European Parliament’s fisheries committee, Chris Davies, the fortnightly virtual debate series will aim to give a voice to all stakeholders, making the case for the European Green Deal to be paralleled by a Blue equivalent, and discussing how this could work.
This event in the series focuses on EU efforts to achieve sustainability and Maximum Sustainable Yield. Chris is joined by Joost Paardekooper, Head of Unit DG MARE, Daniel Voces, Managing Director at Europeche and Rebecca Hubbard, Programme Director at Our Fish.
The series features discussions on the essential need for a European Blue Deal in parallel with the European Green Deal, and how sustainability can be achieved throughout all sectors. Our debates will focus on the inclusion of all relevant stakeholders, with cooperation needed for progress. Central questions, such as how we can protect biodiversity while giving a secure future for industries, will drive the debate. Our aim is to provide you with food for thought from some of Europe’s thought leaders on a challenge that is not going away.
