Attending the Opening Oceans Conference, which creates a roadmap for maritime business leaders to explore the new ocean economy options, discover synergies with their existing businesses, meet investment and gateway partners and make profitable strategic decisions, in Copenhagen early May 2018, I met Daniela Fernandez, a passionate young woman who wants to engage young people in innovation, change and new ideas about how to use the Ocean space. Daniela is the Founder & CEO of the Sustainable Ocean Alliance.
After having been invited to several gatherings with Heads of States and people from the United Nations, she asked herself “Why am I the only young person in the room?” and started to think about how the two worlds can come together. Now the Sustainable Ocean Alliance consists of 75 chapters in 50 countries, where each chapter gathers 15-300 youth leaders.
Listen to Daniela and give her a shoutout in social media, what she is doing is so meaningful and necessary, so you need to get involved yourself.
And don’t forget to look into the new buzzwords, incubator, accelerator, and corporate accelerator. You need to know these terms and what they stand for.
I am @lenagothberg in all social channels and I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for listening!
