The 2020 Virtual Island Summit kicked off today and runs through to September 13th.
The theme of ‘Sharing knowledge for resilient, sustainable and prosperous islands worldwide’ has obvious connections with the Blue Economy. Many island nations enjoy an area of sea space that far exceeds their land area, making the seas and oceans a crucial and valuable enabler to sustainable prosperity.

Organised by Island Innovation, the Summit is covers all of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals in addition to other topics relevant to island communities.

The free and entirely online event has been designed to connect global islands allowing them to share their common experiences through a digital platform.

To register for the free event and to join representatives of over 100 island communities from the Arctic, Europe, the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean, Pacific Islands, South America and beyond please follow the link below. https://www.islandinnovation.co/summit/
