WORLD OCEANS DAY – JUNE 8TH – UNESCO PARIS : WE MUST SAFEGUARD OUR OCEANS & RIVERS AS A SOURCE OF WELL – BEING & PROSPERITY.


AS PRIVATE AND PUBLIC PLAYERS AT ALL LEVELS IN  OUR ADVANCED ECONOMIES EXAMINE OUR PROGRESS IN SAFEGUARDING OUR WATER AS A SOURCE OF WELL – BEING AND PROSPERITY,  THE TIME IS RIGHT TO EXPLORE IF AND HOW OCEANS AND RIVERS AS FRAGILE RESOURCES HAVE BEEN NUTURED WITH INVESTMENT, MANAGEMENT AND CARE.

WATER, LIKE AIR AND FOOD, IS OUR LIFE SUPPORT.

THE WORLD’S POPULATION WILL REACH SOME 9 BILLION BY 2050, MEANING MORE DEMAND AND MORE COMPETITION FOR SCARCE RESOURCES.

WATER COVERS ABOUT 70% OF THE SURFACE OF OUR PLANET. BUT ONLY 2.5% OF IT IS FRESH WATER.

WHICH ISSUES WILL MOST AFFECT WATER OVER THE NEXT 20 TO 30 YEARS AS OCEANS AND RIVERS ARE CONSTANTLY AT RISK WHILE POLLUTION THREATENS OUR HEALTH AND OUR ENVIRONMENT ?

WE MUST TURN THIS SITUATION AROUND : THIS IMPLIES THAT STAKEHOLDERS FROM THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS, NONPROFITS AND THE PUBLIC JOIN FORCES IN A HOLISTIC WAY TO DESIGN FUTURE STRATEGIES FOR SECURING FRESH WATER AND OCEANS.

ON JUNE 8TH, THE OCEAN’S DAY  FORUM WILL BE  GATHERING A UNIQUE BLEND OF CREATIVE MINDS, DECISION – MAKERS AND EXPERTS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE , TO FIND THE SOLUTIONS TO PRESSING GLOBAL CHALLENGES IN CONNECTION WITH WATER.

 THIS  FORUM WILL ALSO BE  A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE WITH STAKEHOLDERS FROM ACROSS THE POLICY COMMUNITY.

WE, AT WWW.CONVERSATIONPRIVEE.COM / WWW.OFF.THE-RECORDMESSAGING.COM ARE PRETTY PROUD  TO ATTEND AND SUPPORT  IN OUR COLUMNS THE UNESCO FORUM AND REPORT TO OUR  VALUED READERS THE BRAND NEW SOLUTIONS  DEEMED TO TURN WATER INTO A FLOW OF NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR GREEN, INCLUSIVE, SUSTAINABLE GROWTH .
