But first some news from the UN Oceans Summit in Lisbon this week:

H.E. Ralph Victory, Irish Ambassador to Ireland posted that Ireland has today announced €10m in funding for ocean initiatives at the UN Oceans Conference. This support will enhance the use of coastal ecosystems, facilitate research, promote inclusive development and support innovation!

IPBN guest speaker at our Blue Economy conference last Sept Ruben Eiras from Fórum Oceano has been trusted by 9 clusters from 7 countries to host the headquarters of the BlueTech Cluster Alliance, in a signed MoU! Together we represent 5000 companies of the blue economy! Together we are stronger for boosting a blue economy that monetizes ocean with sustainability!

Another IPBN guest speaker at our conference last September Oceano Azul Foundation says, "The first day of the UN Ocean Conference brought us a lot of hope. During the side event 'Leading by doing: Latest large-scale actions and new announcements on ocean conservation to achieve 2030 goal', which was organized in partnership with Oceano Azul Foundation, several announcements were made."

And you can review the IPBN conference on the subject here.

Lastly, the European Health Parliament says that health and care professionals are exhausted and under-resourced; the lack of investment threatens the capacity of our health systems. Investments in health and care professionals create economic value for a future healthier society. Yet without a clear map, plan, or forecast of health and care professionals, the excellence of our care standards will be jeopardized.
