For the 4th time since 2002, the international maritime community meets in Brest, at “Le Quartz” congress centre, to share their thoughts and works on issues of maritime safety and security, be it in a conference room, in the trade show alleys or around a coffee.
As usual, there will be talks of save and rescue, of pollutions, of container carriers, of regulations, policies and technologies, however, attendees will also hear of markets, of industry and, perhaps more unexpected, of climate change.
Maritime safety, climate, blue growth.
Consequently, “Blue Growth” was the theme chosen for this 2015 edition of Safer Seas to highlight the stakes of maritime safety and security and the world of possibilities that the seas have to offer.
Safer Seas will be one of the last major milestones before the UNFCCC Conference of Parties, due to take place in December in Paris: oceans, climate, maritime safety, it all makes senses considering the numerous interactions between them… Indeed, it was not by sheer luck that the European Academy of Sciences symposium EURASC and its internationally recognized authorities chose Safer Seas to host their event.
