      Seas the Future conference
      Published:  03 February, 2011

      The Nordic Oceans Conference - Seas the Future – is a high level forum which will examine the cross-cutting challenges facing coastal and fisheries nations in the Nordic and North Atlantic region when it comes to ensuring sustainable use of the seas and oceans.

      Green economic growth in a changing climate has top priority focus in Nordic cooperation today. Seas the Future will bring the fisheries and maritime sectors more clearly into this focus, with prominent government and industry representatives from a range of sectors sharing their perspectives on the prospects and challenges for sustainable growth in marine–based industries.

      The Nordic Oceans Conference also coincides with UN World Oceans Day on 8 June, providing an additional opportunity to highlight Nordic and North Atlantic perspectives on the ocean in the global context.

      Main Conference proceedings on 7 & 8 June will be focussed around three broad themes:
      - North Atlantic oceans issues in a globalised world
      - Sustainable growth in marine-based industries - challenges & opportunities
      - Approaches and priorities for cooperation on oceans management concluding with a
      - High-level panel discussion on sustainable oceans management in the North Atlantic
      Arrangements will get under way with an evening reception on Monday, 6 June.

      At www.seasthefuture.com you will find updated programme details, as well as practical information on registration, accommodation and travel options. Special Conference rates will be on offer for flights and hotels, but you should book early as capacity will fill up quickly.

      The final deadline for registration is 20 May 2011.

      Seas the Future is organised and hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Faroes in cooperation with the Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Fisheries and Environmental Cooperation and the Nordic Atlantic Cooperation (NORA)


      NEW NORDIC FOOD will be featured in all Conference catering. This is a culinary concept and approach highlighting the best of local Nordic produce - not least seafood - based on the principles of purity, simplicity, security and ethics.

      Conference proceedings on 7 & 8 June will be showcased on the Conference programme, with fresh examples from creative young film-makers exploring relationships between people, the environment and the sea.
