Reimagine Talk | Stage 1
The world’s seventh largest economy based on GDP doesn’t belong to a single country, and isn’t even on land, yet, it’s valued at around $3 trillion annually, and supports the livelihoods of more than 3 billion people. It’s the ocean. In this talk, Dona Bertarelli – the fastest woman to sail around the world – will account her voyage from sailing the high seas, advocacy efforts for the blue economy, and ocean conservation work. She will call on the public sector to develop regulations and support economic diversification, financial institutions to invest in the blue economy, and consumers, civil society and youth to raise awareness on the issue.
