Bali Ocean Days Conference 19-20 Jan 2024

Denpasar-Bali | Pantau Terkini |The inaugural launch of what aims to become an annual international marine conservation event promoting environmental sustainability in Indonesia and beyond will take place in Bali on 19-20 January 2024.

Created by Sky Blue Sea Foundation and organized by Darmawan & Associates, Bali Ocean Days has been developed in partnership with the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime and Investment Affairs and the Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum. During the conference and the accompanying Blue Ocean Days Showcase Exhibition, key government officials, institutional finance managers, sustainable economy stakeholders, environmental NGOs, academics, and business leaders will all join together to recover, rebuild, and sustain ocean environments.

“Tanah Air Indonesia” means “Our Land and Waters” and reflects how Indonesians view their archipelagic nation, comprised of more than 17,000 islands stretching like an emerald garland along the equator connecting the Pacific and Indian Oceans. As the world’s largest island nation, Indonesians share a deep understanding of the central role played by the oceans and seas in the continuing existence of planet Earth. 

Those participating at Bali Ocean Days will hear experts share the latest news and insights on reducing marine pollution and ocean acidification, protecting and restoring coastal ecosystems, reversing the overfishing crisis, and increasing the economic and social benefits from the sustainable use of marine resources.

The Bali Ocean Days Conference will facilitate the exchange of ideas, strategies, and local and international initiatives between high-ranking officials, Blue Economy stakeholders, NGOs, academics, and ocean lovers. Organizers have compiled a conference where local community members, industry, and public sector officials will mutually inspire through exchanging insights, research, and technological means available to clean up our rivers, streams, and oceans essential to the planet’s future.

A Sky Blue Sea Foundation Awards Ceremony will celebrate and acknowledge leaders and changemakers in the circular economy and ecological transition as part of the two-day Conference.
