Stakeholder engagement is at the core of the institutional mechanism set up towards the implementation of the 2021 UfM Ministerial Declaration on Sustainable Blue Economy (SBE) and its related Roadmap.

Within this framework, the 2nd UfM Stakeholder Conference on SBE hosted by Greece, brought together in Athens over 350 participants in order to take stock of progress achieved; discuss joint challenges and transformative tools and pathways for the Sustainable Development of the sectors of activities of the Mediterranean SBE; feed the Roadmap and the related next steps; and set the path towards future deliberations at political level.

A very rich and dynamic cross-section of Med SBE stakeholders from across the basin took part in the Conference, affirming the strong collaborative spirit of the Mediterranean cooperation on Sustainable Blue Economy, at both technical and political level.

The Programme of the Conference was structured around Opening and Closing Plenary Sessions and multiple Parallel Multi-stakeholder Workshops, promoting interactive discussions (i.e. through a participatory approach and the use of Mentimeter) and supported by a Moderator and a Rapporteur.
