This glass enclosed ‘tank’ will host discussions focused on Nordic collaboration and cooperation in ocean opportunity. These sessions will be a dialogue for change between participants with audience and speakers of equal importance to forming solutions.
Please note, timing and titles of key-notes and panel sessions are tentative, and will be adjusted in the coming months prior to the conference.
