Infoday "Ocean of tomorrow" (distribution of leaflets CLIMB + CLIWASEC)

Oceans offer huge opportunities for innovation and economic development. However, the impact of human activities on the marine environment keeps increasing. Maritime transport, offshore energy, tourism, coastal development, resource extraction, fisheries and aquaculture are examples of activities which can have a major impact on the marine environment, putting at risk fragile marine ecosystems. The European Union has taken up this challenge with the Integrated Maritime Policy (IMP) of which the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (2008/56/EC) is the environmental pillar.
On 16th of June 2011 took place the INFODAY on "The Ocean of Tomorrow 2012". Coordinated topics focused on Research in support to the Good Environmental Status (GES) of our Seas and Oceans. It was held in the Charlemagne Conference Centre Room Sicco Mansholt, Brussels. The Conference gathered approximately 120 participants from 17 countries covering a great variety of organisations (research, consultancy, industry, policy makers, NGO) and sectors. Most of participants were interested in environment (including environmental technologies), fisheries and aquaculture and transport and energy fields. CLIMB was represented by BayFOR.
