Short description

There is an urgent need to radically change the way we think about and use the ocean, away from a blue growth-based approach towards a sustainable blue economy.

This is particularly urgent in Sweden, where our relationship with, and dependence on, the sea has dramatically changed in living memory. It requires no less than a transformation in the way we think about the marine space, and the activities increasingly deployed there in our seas.

This requires that different stakeholders and agendas come together in a constructive dialogue. As a larger part of society has an ever-increasing stake in the sea, it is imperative that we develop new forms of stakeholder collaboration, combined with scientific ecosystem-based practices.
