Building a Sustainable Blue Economy – Who Will Drive the Transition?

For the EU to deliver on its climate objectives, the blue economy needs to undergo a transition to further sustainability –  But how can we achieve this? Who can and who should lead the way?

Join Rud Pedersen Public Affairs Brussels on June 8 from 12:00 – 13:00 CET for the second event in the digital series discussing all you need to know about the Blue Economy.

Stay up to date with the debate, which follows the recent European Commission’s publication of a new approach for a sustainable blue economy in the EU.
