Before we get to that, what were our highlights from #unoc2022?
🌊 Kjell Inge Røkke's commitment, as Patron of the Ocean Decade Alliance, and UN Ocean Decade Special Emissary for Industrial Ocean Data, to study the mesopelagic ecosystem, and create an integrated map of #microplasticpollution globally, using the great resources and skills available at REV Oceanand HUB Ocean. To drive policy makers and regulators to action, we need more data on the scale of the #microplastic pollution problem.
🌊 The #ocean100 Dialogues brings together the world's biggest transnational companies with the majority of their revenues from the world’s ocean, to create a science-business platform for ocean stewardship. Meeting Maha AlQattan and Ayla Bajwa from DP World and Benj Sykes from Ørsted, and hearing their plans for action (and not just words!), and disruption of existing practices, is good news for adoption of clean ocean technology solutions like Pinovo's.
🌊 Finally, and the answer to the question at the top - the policeman was not arresting the Pinovo Banner, he was very kindly stopping it from blowing over in the strong Lisbon winds! This was yet another example of the friendliness of the people of Lisbon, and the warm welcome we received in their beautiful city.
