The Commission for Natural Resources has the pleasure to invite you to a follow-up event of the conference "Our Ocean" (5-6 October, Malta), aiming to involve stakeholders from the regional and local level in the debate on sustainable blue economy and ocean governance. The high level opening session will touch upon challenges and opportunities for European regions and policy developments on global and regional scale. The participants will be able to exchange views with EU Commissioner for maritime affairs, fisheries and environment Karmenu VELLA, Statoil Vice-President Jannik LINDBÆK, Ocean Energy Europe CEO Rémi GRUET and EIB's Director for Environment and Sustainable Territorial Development Werner SCHMIDT. 
In addition, two separate thematic sessions will focus on the regional aspects of the blue economy and ocean governance, with the involvement of policy-makers, researchers and practitioners.
