Earlier this summer the European Commission launched its public consultation on Ocean Governance. The Consultation Document can be viewed by clicking on the image below.
All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from stakeholders, private and public, as well as international governmental and non-governmental organisations.
The aim of this consultation is to gather input on how the EU could contribute to achieving better international governance of oceans and seas to the benefit of sustainable blue growth. On the basis of the results and other sources of data and information, the European Commission will consider how best to develop a more coherent, comprehensive and effective EU policy on improving the international ocean governance framework.
Contributing to public consultations such as this one are one of our responsibilities as citizens of a #BlueSociety. There are still some weeks left to have your voice heard, so please visit the Consultation webpage to leave your comments and feedback.
