Event description

Description

Due to highly subscribe and limited number of seats at the venue, World Ocean Summit 2014 tickets are completely SOLD-OUT and we can no longer accept registrations.

Thank you for your support and we hope to see you at one of our future events soon.
Join more than 250 leaders from business, government, academia, multilateral institutions and NGOs at the second World Ocean Summit to discuss how economic development and ocean conservation can be reconciled. The conference hosted in association with National Geographic will take place in San Francisco on February 24th - 26th 2014.
Where the first summit set the scene, the second, chaired by John Micklethwait, Editor-in-Chief, The Economist, will look towards solutions—and the role business can play. Central to this are two things; governance and sustainability. Good governance is difficult to forge. The sustainable use of our seas is equally essential—and intimately linked to better governance. The challenge now is to design a regime which successfully balances economic development with sustainability. World Ocean Summit 2014 offers delegates the opportunity to shape debate about governance of the ocean.
Featured Speakers Include:
*HSH Prince Albert II, Principality of Monaco
*Maria Damanaki, Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, European Commission
*José María Figueres, former President, Republic of Costa Rica and *Co-chair, Global Ocean Commission
*Trevor Manuel, Minister in the Presidency responsible for the National Planning Commission, Republic of South Africa, and Co-chair, Global Ocean Commission
*Masamichi Morooka, Chairman, International Chamber of Shipping
*Frits van Paasschen, Chief Executive Officer, Starwood Hotels and Resorts
*Achim Steiner, Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme and Under-Secretary-General, United Nations
*Gala dinner hosted by National Geographic

Taking place in the evening of the first day of the summit, the gala dinner is an opportunity to hear from inspiring speakers from the National Geographic and network with other event participants in a relaxed, evening setting. We are delighted to announce Paul Nicklen, National Geographic photographer, as a speaker at this year's dinner. The gala dinner is open to all registered delegates of World Ocean Summit 2014.
