In Cabo di Roca, at the westernmost point of mainland Europe, you have no chance but to get a global vision of the world, our planet, and veritable values. No wonder, the UN Ocean Conference was organized in Lisbon as Hilaire Beloc said, “If there is one portion of Europe which was made by the sea more than another, Portugal is that slice, that portion, that belt. Portugal was made by the Atlantic.” As the global event comes to a close, it remains abundantly clear that we need all industries and sectors on board to achieve SDG 14 (Life Below Water) and a global “Blue Transformation”. We need to join forces with innovative passionate leaders to ensure a healthy future for our seas. It was a real honor to get an invitation to the 'Polar Oceans: engine to the global Ocean' an official event of the United Nations Ocean Conference organized by the Foundation Prince Albert II of Monaco in collaboration with the Ocean Azul Foundation in partnership with the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), The European Polar Board (EPB), and International Cryosphere Climate Initiative (ICCI). In the context of the current situation, such events are more relevant than ever. A global approach and joint effort allow us to advance faster and therefore have more impact. As HSH Prince Albert II said, “Thanks to you, thanks to your research, your discussions, your ideas, we will be able to advance the cause of the Polar regions, and with it, the cause of our Planet ». I admit, today I had a chance to see a proactive multistakeholder community gathering so many decision-makers and experts of different fields and levels. Fresh thinking, new collaborations, and dynamic ideas are sure to shape a more sustainable, positive, and what is important a more peaceful future even in the darkest and most uncertain times.
