The first ever EU Algae Awareness Summit, co-organised by the European Commission, the French Government and the Global Seaweed Coalition (UN Global Compact) with the support of the Oceanographic Institute, Prince Albert I of Monaco Foundation, will be held during 5-7 October 2023 at the Maison de l’Océan in Paris.
The event aims to promote and raise awareness among EU Member States’ administrations and the general public on the benefits algae cultivation may bring to national and regional economies, to people, and to the regeneration of our Ocean.
The summit will feature high-level panel conversations, participatory group discussions, and an exhibition area with algae products and a virtual reality experience. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about algae sector developments across the world and in Europe.
Participation on 5 and 6 October will be by invitation only, but on 7th October the Maison de l’Ocean will be open to the public.
