This is our list of current ventures being progressed with the community of ocean leaders.
Blue EConomy Roadmap
We are growing an alliance of partners and portfolio of initiatives that can advance Western Australia's Blue Economy. The initial phases of engagement are with individual leaders, including State Government representatives to determine appetite, scope and resourcing for a roadmap.
On World Ocean Day, 8th June 2020, we are convening a community of ocean leaders from across Western Australia's Blue Economy. Through presentations and discussions we will envision and enact activities aligned with the vision of a stronger blue economy, healthier Indian ocean and stronger relationships with neighbouring nations.
We are planning activities for Australia's National Science Week aligned with the 'Deep Blue' theme. While Science Week is in August, the activities would be launched in June at the World Ocean Day event. We are currently refining proposals with the local National Science Week committee.
We are planning a 10-week program for emerging ocean leaders. This will follow on from science week and lead into West Tech Fest and Rotto Tech Fest in early December. We are currently consulting with those leaders and partners to design the program.
