Why Blue Week?

The Grenada Blue Week and Investment Conference represents a response to major recent developments in the global oceans agenda:
  • The adoption of the Agenda 203025 Sustainable Development Goals - by the United Nations in 2015, including the sustainable development goal 14 on oceans and seas, and;

“New technologies are needed to map, photograph and explore the 95 percent of the ocean that we have yet to see. The goal is to protect biodiversity, to provide stability and resilience. We need deep-diving subs, new technologies to explore the ocean.”

Dr. Sylvia Earle, President and Chairman of the Sylvia Earle Alliance (S.E.A)
