Description

Our Ocean Wealth – Shared Voices from Small Island Nations

Our Ocean Wealth Summit is Ireland’s flagship event for the marine sector. From engineering to shipping, from aquaculture to energy, from technology to biosciences, this Summit brings together Irish and International organisations working to create innovative, sustainable solutions with global impact that drive our blue economy.

As an island nation, this year we are acknowledging the role of islands in Our Ocean Wealth, and the theme for the 2019 Summit is Shared Voices from Small Island Nations. The Summit will hear from global leaders including environmental activist and former US Secretary of State John Kerry and a host of world leaders of island nations as well as researchers, entrepreneurs and academics to engage, network and shape discussions about the maritime economy, and the related opportunities and challenges.

The event will begin on Sunday evening (9th) with a Gala Seafood banquet and a cultural introduction to our Island heritage - “We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.”

Our Ocean Wealth Summit, sponsored by PwC, takes place on 10 June at Cork’s City Hall, with an action packed conference line up, while summit delegates also have the opportunity to attend a Marine Industry Showcase hosted by Enterprise Ireland which continues until Tuesday 11 June. 25 companies, along with national stakeholders, from three specific sub-sectors of marine will be present:

• Offshore Renewables, in particular Offshore Wind.
• Smart Ports and Harbours/Smart Shipping.
• Maritime Security and Surveillance
