11th Annual World Ocean Summit and Expo

Lisbon, Portugal
March 11-13, 2024


During March 11-13th, 2024, The International SeaKeepers Society's Science Liaison Katie Sheahan attended the World Ocean Summit and Expo in Lisbon, Portugal hosted by The Economist Impact. Leading researchers and marine industry personnel from around the world attended this event, including Sylvia Earle, Fabien Cousteau, and Nippon Foundation President Jumpei Sasakawa, among hundreds of others making substantial progress for global ocean conservation. Katie attended many interesting panels focused on marine science, sustainable fishing, ethical yachting practices, and much more. The expo was a great opportunity to meet with scientists, learn about new ocean technologies, and network with marine industry partners. SeaKeepers looks forward to attending the next World Ocean Summit hosted by one of Seabed 2030's founders, The Nippon Foundation.

Outing Goal

The International SeaKeepers Society attended the World Ocean Summit and Expo with the purpose to share our mission of oceanographic research, conservation, and education through direct involvement with the yachting community. Providing educational resources and hands-on marine science experiences to students is the primary focus for ensuring the future wellbeing of our planet. SeaKeepers enables the yachting community to take full advantage of their unique potential to advance marine sciences and raise awareness about global ocean issues.
