Sustainable use of ocean resources in co-creation with the ecosystem, by enhancing the generative & restorative capacity of the oceans. There are new developments in aquaculture, using nature’s innovative capacity e.g. seaweed, seagrass, oysters,… or reforestation of our oceans and seas, e.g. by mangroves. Nature based solutions for coastal protection are becoming more and more mainstream. It also relates to marine spatial planning, multi-functional use, waste management & pollution, logistics & transport. Inclusion and participation of all interested stakeholders and social groups, with long-term sustainable development as common goals.
