The participants of the Youth and Blue Economy conference
congratulate the Government and people of Kenya in its
hosting of the Sustainable Blue Economy Conference – the
first ever global conference on the blue economy. We are
humbled by thousands of participants from around the world
who will convene in Nairobi to share ideas on the critical issue
of harnessing the potential of our oceans, seas, lakes and
rivers to improve the lives of all, particularly for the people in
developing countries such as women, young men and women
and Indigenous peoples; while seeking to leverage the latest
innovations, scientific advances and best practices to build
prosperity while conserving our waters for future generations .
