Celebrating World Oceans Day 2019 in Brussels - Women and the Ocean

Junio 02 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Women and the Ocean - that is the fitting focus of World Ocean Day this year. It reminds us that probably 50% of workers along the fish value chain are women - but data are for the most part missing except for some case studies - one of the many things to change for healthy oceans, prosperious and sustainable fisheries and respectful conditions ensured for women, men and ocean life. Brussels kicked off again the series of events by Mundus maris and its partners on three continents to celebrate World Ocean's Day.

Brilliant sunny weather and the usual large crowds flocking to the Brussels Environment Festival (2 June) in the 50aire Park created an excellent scenario for World Ocean's Day celebrations at the Mundus maris booth which was "under siege" all day long.
