#GuardianiDellaCostaPerUnGiorno

In occasione della Giornata nazionale del Mare e della Cultura Marinara, il team diCosta Crociere Foundation ha lanciato la call-to-action #GuardianiDellaCostaPerUnGiorno e insieme a un gruppo di volontari di Costa Crociere ha pulito la spiaggia libera diGenova-Sturla.

Questa iniziativa, volta a sensibilizzare la comunità verso la salvaguardia del litorale italiano, rientra nell’ambito del programma “Guardiani della Costa”, un progetto di citizen science per la tutela delle coste italiane che Costa Crociere Foundation ha lanciato nel 2017, rivolto a studenti e insegnanti delle scuole superiori italiane. Il programma ha lo scopo di sensibilizzare — attraverso l’adozione di tratti di costa — gli studenti, i giovani e i cittadini alla fragile bellezza delle nostre coste, aumentando la consapevolezza sui problemi derivanti dall’aumento dei rifiuti, in particolare plastici, lungo il litorale, sulle spiagge e in mare.

Nell’attività di pulizia della spiaggia di Genova-Sturla è stato coinvolto anche il team Commerciale e marketing di Costa Crociere, che ha invitato gli agenti di viaggio di tutta Italia ad aderire a questa iniziativa, diventando a loro volta #GuardianiDellaCostaPerUnGiorno, con i propri collaboratori, clienti e famigliari, adottando e pulendo una spiaggia del proprio territorio.

Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF) 2019

Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF), 25-26 June 2019, The Residence Tunis hotel, Tunisia

On 25 – 26 June 2019, Blue Jay Communication will host the second edition of the Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF). Taking place in Tunis this year, the event will gather 150+ delegates from across the globe, including ocean experts and innovators, African political leaders and policy makers, international entrepreneurs and investors, as well as NGOs and multilaterals.

Once again, the forum will provide a unique platform for ocean stakeholders to share insights on how to achieve SDG 14 and present new investment opportunities, while facilitating public-private partnerships and networking.

As a key driver for global trade and commerce and a major source of food and energy (90% of world trade and 2/3 of energy supplies are carried by sea), the ocean has every reason to become a strong economic force and even more so in Africa where more than 70% of the states are coastal.

ABEF recognises the importance of the Blue Economy in creating jobs, sustaining livelihoods for local communities and offering low-cost impactful climate change adaptation solutions on the continent.

Last year, during the forum’s inauguration, speakers and delegates at ABEF2018 agreed on the need for innovative financing to start developing Africa’s blue economy on a wider scale, involving not only governments but also the private sector. Building on these recommendations, ABEF2019 will have a strong focus on business and investment. Discussions will explore the opportunities and innovations in emerging and frontier sectors of the blue economy and how they can help accelerate Africa’s transformation.
In particular, ABEF panel topics will include: Public-private partnerships; Fishing & Aquaculture; Ports & Trade; Ocean Energy; Governance & Security; Pollution & Waste Management; Women Empowerment; Youth Education & Technology; and Ocean Financing.

To receive further information, please visit our website: www.ABEF2019.com and follow us on Twitter: @bluejaycom #ABEF2019
