Seas At Risk’s Ocean Action! conference took place on 5 February 2020 in Brussels. The event, which marked Seas At Risk’s 30-year anniversary, brought together ocean lovers from civil society, institutions, governments and scientific organisations. The report retraces key moments of the conference, such as the presentation of the Blue Manifesto, the thought-provoking presentations and discussions between inspirational experts, decision-makers and activists. A selection of the many creative collective ideas that emerged from the workshops are presented in the report, providing useful examples of concrete ocean actions to complement the Blue Manifesto.

For the full list of ideas that emerged from the workshops, see the “Annex – Workshop outcomes”
