One Ocean Summit

One Ocean Summit

Event date: 09/02/2022

In an effort to mobilise the international community and take tangible action to mitigate such pressures on the ocean, the President of the French Republic has decided to organise a One Planet Summit dedicated to the ocean, scheduled to take place in Brest on 9-11 February 2022. The “One Ocean Summit” will be held in the context of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, with the support of the United Nations.

The goal of the One Ocean Summit is to raise the collective level of ambition of the international community on marine issues and to translate our shared responsibility to the ocean into tangible commitments.

On 9 and 10 February, more than thirty events (workshops, forums, roundtables and other initiatives) will be held ahead of the high-level segment, to 

engage the “international maritime community”, addressing a myriad topics of global scope to look at all dimensions of the ocean and propose solutions, beyond the existing status assessments.

On 11 February in the morning, President Emmanuel Macron will bring together a small but determined group of Heads of State and Government, leaders of multilateral institutions, business leaders and civil society policymakers to take ambitious commitments. Several important initiatives will be launched on this occasion in favour of marine ecosystem protection and sustainable fisheries, intended to fight pollution, in particular from plastics, respond to the impacts of climate change, as well as advocate for improved governance of the oceans.

All events scheduled during the three days of the One Ocean Summit will take place at Ateliers des Capucins. Several other events open to the public will be held in a number of sites in the city of Brest.
