14 to more than 200 scientists, business and political leaders, youth advocates and environmentaliststh Up to 20th May in French Polynesia for the Blue Climate Summit hosted by the Blue Climate Initiative.

Several themes were prioritized at the conference. First and foremost, we needed to improve the balance between the ocean and humans. I thought that without a strong marine environment, humanity would suffer.

“Every living ocean is closely related to the Earth’s climate and the existence of life, including humans,” said Sylvia Earle, an American marine biologist, oceanographer, explorer, writer, and instructor. Dr. Earle said.

Next was the importance of marine health to human health. Threats to the marine world in unimaginable ways. One such threat is deep sea mining. An ambiguous Jamaican entity called the International Seabed Authority plans to issue deep-sea mining licenses without knowing what this kind of destructive project will do to the fragile ecosystems of the ocean floor.

It is believed that large untouched seafloor debris will be destroyed and large amounts of debris will be released. This certainly affects the life above. Summit participants called for more scientific research to learn what the consequences and consequences of such exploratory mining would be.

President Edouard Frich of the country that hosted the event said: A message to provide to the world. On the occasion of the Blue Climate Summit, I encourage the world to come to French Polynesia, listen to us, and above all, listen to us. “

The Blue Climate Summit was seen as a starting point for important initiatives, not events, but plans are meaningless unless they are followed up by action. To this end, the coming months will be important for advancing, implementing and expanding the agreed initiatives.
