According to the World Bank, the blue economy can be defined as the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods and jobs, while preserving the health of ocean ecosystems. However, there is increasing evidence that losses in the oceans’ natural capital resulting from unsustainable economic activity are eroding the resource base on which such growth depends.
To enhance blue education and improve the environmental sustainability of the coastal communities in which it operates, Euronext is supporting mini-companies that best embody a sustainable use of the ocean resources for economic growth through the “Blue Innovation Award”. This year, the award gave student companies from Belgium, France Ireland, Norway, Portugal, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom the chance to join an international competition, and to develop and present innovative business ideas related to the blue economy.
