2nd Mission Arena by Blue Mission BANOS

The 2nd Mission Arena hosted by BlueMissionBANOS is taking place at H2O 6 kvartāls event hall in Riga, Latvia on 25-26 April 2024. 

Following the success of the first BlueMission BANOS Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden last November, BlueMissionBANOS is now hosting its second edition


Registrations are open until 22 April 2024. Don’t miss out! 

This new edition will focus on regional actors in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and East Sweden. The key stakeholders in this Arena will be Mission Ocean-relevant actors who will have the opportunity to engage with current and future actions in this region. Over the course of two days, progress will be showcased, open needs will be discussed, and the next steps to transform this region’s blue economy to be more carbon-neutral, environmentally friendly, and circular will be planned. Additionally, all participants will then have the chance to vote on the Roadmap towards Mission Ocean and Water’s success for this region at the final Mission Assembly. 

The focus will not only be on the Baltic Sea as such but also cover ‘Blue on Land’, i.e., lakes, rivers and wastewater. Topics include fishery & aquaculture, shipping and ports, nutrients and pollution leakage to the ocean and waters, waterborne transport, nature protection and restoration, sustainable products, and all actions required to transform these sectors. 

Discussions will be framed across 15 specific workshop themes. When you register, please indicate whether you want to make an active contribution to one of them. We will accept suggestions until 15 March 2024. Please note that places will be limited, and priority will be given to local actors.
