How can we untap the full potential of the oceans and seas for our transport, energy, food, leisure and living space? And do so in a way that ensures that they become healthier and more productive? Through “The maritime future is NOW!” campaign, the Netherlands urgently calls on all maritime partners to join forces and become gamechangers on a voyage towards a sustainable blue economy.
Live from Studio Ahoy in Rotterdam, four special guests, along with your host, Frank Goossensen (Arcadis and Topsector Water & Maritime), will launch “The maritime future is NOW!” on Friday, 13 November, between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. CET.
The launch will present this ground-breaking new campaign that has been developed in collaboration with and for the Dutch maritime sector and highlight innovative maritime projects. The Dutch maritime sector is eager to share its knowledge and expertise with its international partners. To do so, it has defined the following four pillars, which the speakers will zoom in on at the launch:
- developing zero-emission and smart shipping
- creating green, vibrant and connected port cities around the world
- advancing the sustainable blue economy with healthy and productive oceans
- acting as a green gateway to Europe
As the name of the campaign suggests: the maritime future is now, so let’s shape it together!”
And remember this is an interactive event, so have your questions ready. We’ll be delighted to answer them.
We look forward to seeing you!
This event is made possible in part by Rotterdam Maritime Capital of Europe.
