The 2020 UfM Regional Stakeholder Conference on Blue Economy on 10 and 11 March will take place at the Palau de Pedralbes in Barcelona (Spain).
The UfM Regional Stakeholder Conference on Blue Economy is a key step on the way to the 2020 UfM Ministerial Conference on Blue Economy, scheduled for the 2 July in Malta.
The Stakeholder Conference is meant to offer the possibility to consult with a wide range of relevant actors on priority themes identified by the countries to feed the joint post-2020 Blue Economy agenda; promote dialogue and exchange of experiences on common areas of work; keep stock of the progress of the activities at regional level; and maintain a high participatory approach to ensure stakeholders involvement in pulling together capacities, mandates and resources.
The conference will be structured along parallel thematic workshops/sessions. The WestMED Hackathons will be organised back-to-back to this conference.
