Following the success of the first BlueMission BANOS Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden last November, we are pleased to announce that our next Blue Mission Arena 2 will be taking place in Riga, Latvia on 25-26 April 2024, back-to-back with the HELCOM Ministerial Conference and 50th anniversary celebration.
This Mission Arena will focus on regional actors in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and East Sweden. The key stakeholders in this Arena will be Mission Ocean-relevant actors who will have the opportunity to engage with current and future actions in this region. Over the course of two days, we want to inspire you to showcase progress, discuss open needs, and plan the next steps to transform this region’s blue economy to be more carbon-neutral, environmentally friendly, and circular.
In this Arena, we will not only focus on the Baltic Sea as such but also cover ‘Blue on Land’, i.e., inland waters, freshwater, and wastewater. Topics include fishery & aquaculture, shipping and ports, ocean energy and multi-use, waterborne transport, nature protection and restoration, sustainable products, and all actions required to transform these sectors.
All participants will also have the chance to vote on the Roadmap towards Mission Ocean and Water’s success for this region.
Spots will be limited, so keep your eyes peeled for registrations opening soon. We are looking forward to hosting you in Riga this April.
and the entire BlueMission BANOS Team
