Why the Blue Economy?
The Ocean Economy is essential to the future welfare and prosperity of humankind.
Following the IPBN’s Blue Economy Conference in Sep 2021, there have been many milestone achievements worth mentioning. However, steps in the right direction need to be made more quickly and more often as alarming climate disasters continue to ravage the planet.
The IPBN Algarve committee, in partnership with the University of Algarve (UAlg), the Algarve STP, and NEST Tourism Innovation Center Portugal, recently hosted the well-attended event, "Scaling-up for Tourism: Opportunities for Innovation in Tourism and the Challenges to Adapt to Transformation."
The IPBN is very much looking forward to the year ahead and hopes our members find value in the effort we put into keeping us all connected. While some details are still being arranged, we are confident to announce what’s on for 2023 so that we can find the best way to highlight our members, make introductions, and facilitate trade.
