OCEAN SPACE FORUM

After the success of the first edition in 2023, Prométhée Earth Intelligence, CNES, and the Monaco Space Affairs Office are organizing the second edition of the Ocean Space Forum on Tuesday, July 2, 2024, in the prestigious setting of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.

 

Once again this year, the Forum will bring together prominent figures from the realms of research, politics, and economics to highlight the contribution of New Space technologies to the preservation and sustainable management of our most precious resource: the Ocean.

The program will feature captivating roundtable discussions that, through the lens of space, will address essential topics such as the preservation of marine ecosystems, the development of the blue economy, the fight against climate change and its impacts on the oceans, and the conservation of marine resources.

 

OSF 2024 will mark an important milestone on the road to the third United Nations Conference on the Ocean, jointly organized by the governments of France and Costa Rica, which will take place in Nice from June 9 to 14, 2025. This conference will play a key role in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 14, which aims to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for development.

 

Let’s meet on July 2, 2024, in Monaco to contribute to shaping a future where New Space offers concrete solutions to preserve the Ocean and its riches for future generations.
