The European Blue Forum will hold its second deep-dive workshop on 16 October 2023. This workshop is only open to the European Blue Forum members.
The question ‘What does a fossil fuel free blue economy look like? How can we as a community support this transition?’ was originally posed to members of the European Blue Forum as a panel session at the official launch event on 26th May 2023 in Brest, France. This deliberately broad question was designed to give all sustainable blue economy stakeholders the opportunity to share the challenges they face, as well as their needs for the future, regardless of the sector or type of organisation they represent.
The launch event panel session 2 introduced the question and gathered a broad range of responses, however mostly using SLIDO polls which limited the ability of stakeholders to share details and sectoral nuances.
The objective of this ‘Deep-Dive’ workshop is to allow members of the European Blue Forum to discuss the challenges and obstacles they are facing and their unique aspirations and requirements in decarbonising their sector, and eventually transitioning towards a fossil fuel free sustainable blue economy in the future.
The output from this workshop will be the production of a stakeholder position paper, providing the perspectives of the entire European sustainable blue economy stakeholder group - our Blue Community.
