Civil Society Forum

Civil society and the blue economy

Join hundreds of civil society organizations on November 27 at the nearby University of Nairobi for the Civil Society Forum.

Civil society has a critical role to play in the blue economy agenda. Together, you will help draft a set of recommendations to the main conference and a roadmap for civil society engagement in the blue economy agenda.

If you’d like to attend this forum, register online, and check the box for the Civil Society Forum.

During a full-day of expert panels and interactive discussions, you will learn how to:

  • Build a common understanding of the blue economy approach for all
  • Structure engagement and collective action to promote an all-inclusive and sustainable blue economy
  • Build partnerships and synergies with other stakeholders including the private and public sector in the blue economy
  • Hear about lessons learned and best practices of other civil society organizations based on longstanding expertise and firmly established community roots
