Join us at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) to start the Ocean Data Revolution and discuss cross-sectoral partnerships to reach the EU Green Deal & Paris Agreement commitments!

Blue Carbon is instrumental to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement. Directing the required projects and investments in the Blue Economy requires data, expertise and cross-sectoral partnerships. Solutions in the Nordic region have the potential to catalyse transferable, actionable partnerships for the benefit of the world’s blue ecosystems.
