The “One Ocean Summit” will be held in the context of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, with the support of the United Nations.
The goal of the One Ocean Summit is to raise the collective level of ambition of the international community on marine issues and to translate our shared responsibility to the ocean into tangible commitments.
On 9 and 10 February, more than thirty events (workshops, forums, roundtables and other initiatives) will be held ahead of the high-level segment, to engage the “international maritime community”, addressing a myriad topics of global scope to look at all dimensions of the ocean and propose solutions, beyond the existing status assessments.
On 11 February in the morning, the French President Emmanuel Macron will bring together a group of Heads of State and Government, leaders of multilateral institutions, business leaders and civil society policymakers to take commitments.
All proceedings during the three-day event will take place bilingually in French and English.
