Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF) 2019

Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF), 25-26 June 2019, The Residence Tunis hotel, Tunisia

On 25 – 26 June 2019, Blue Jay Communication will host the second edition of the Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF). Taking place in Tunis this year, the event will gather 150+ delegates from across the globe, including ocean experts and innovators, African political leaders and policy makers, international entrepreneurs and investors, as well as NGOs and multilaterals.

Once again, the forum will provide a unique platform for ocean stakeholders to share insights on how to achieve SDG 14 and present new investment opportunities, while facilitating public-private partnerships and networking.

As a key driver for global trade and commerce and a major source of food and energy (90% of world trade and 2/3 of energy supplies are carried by sea), the ocean has every reason to become a strong economic force and even more so in Africa where more than 70% of the states are coastal.

ABEF recognises the importance of the Blue Economy in creating jobs, sustaining livelihoods for local communities and offering low-cost impactful climate change adaptation solutions on the continent.

Last year, during the forum’s inauguration, speakers and delegates at ABEF2018 agreed on the need for innovative financing to start developing Africa’s blue economy on a wider scale, involving not only governments but also the private sector. Building on these recommendations, ABEF2019 will have a strong focus on business and investment. Discussions will explore the opportunities and innovations in emerging and frontier sectors of the blue economy and how they can help accelerate Africa’s transformation.
In particular, ABEF panel topics will include: Public-private partnerships; Fishing & Aquaculture; Ports & Trade; Ocean Energy; Governance & Security; Pollution & Waste Management; Women Empowerment; Youth Education & Technology; and Ocean Financing.

To receive further information, please visit our website: www.ABEF2019.com and follow us on Twitter: @bluejaycom #ABEF2019

𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗔𝗟𝗕𝗔𝗧𝗥𝗢𝗦𝗦
On one of the remotest islands on Earth, thousands of albatross chicks lie dead on the ground - their bodies are filled with plastic.

Returning to the island over several years, Chris Jordan and his film crew witnessed the cycles of birth, life and death of these magnificent creatures as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. ALBATROSS walks us through the horror and grief of this environmental tragedy, but ultimately brings us to a deeply felt experience of beauty and love for life on Earth.

Stepping outside of traditional documentary film style, ALBATROSS is a powerful visual journey that brings viewers together into a shared experience of reverence and renewal.

ALBATROSS comes in full length (97 min) and in English language. It is an adult film with strong emotional content, so we recommend it for viewers age 12 and above.

Annual SealSpotter Challenge

Citizen Scientists around the world are counting down to the start of the Annual SealSpotter Challenge at 9.00am on Saturday 8 June, when they will have the opportunity to contribute to vital seal research from the comfort of their own homes.

“Participants will have two weeks to access the SealSpotter web portal and count as many seals and seal pups as they can, and very appropriately it’s starting on World Oceans Day” says Dr Rebecca McIntosh, Research Scientist with Phillip Island Nature Parks.

“SealSpotter harnesses the drone (RPA – Remote Piloted Aircraft) technology we are currently using to monitor several colonies of Australian fur seals on Victoria’s offshore islands. The high resolution images captured by the drone are then uploaded to the SealSpotter portal, ready for the start of the Annual SealSpotter Challenge.”

Some of Victoria’s fur seal colonies can number in the tens of thousands, so the contribution made by citizen scientists who can count the various populations accurately and efficiently through SealSpotter is highly valued. Participants help count seals, identify pups, and also spot entangled seals caught up in marine debris such as rubbish and fishing material.

“We launched SealSpotter last year and were thrilled with the results and the level of engagement by a total of 644 citizen scientists not only here in Australia, but in Europe, UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, India, Russia and throughout Asia. Between them they managed to view and label over 84,000 images, and classify over 610,000 seals.”

“We are excited not only about the collection of data, but also about some of the other benefits this type of accessible research collaboration brings. By engaging with a wide range of citizen scientists including individuals, schools and special interest groups, we are hoping that there will be an ever increasing awareness within the community of the need to support research to better understand our natural world and improve conservation and the health of our oceans.”

“We are looking forward to collating and publishing the results soon after the end of the challenge and celebrating the Citizen Scientists and those that have made a large effort towards the count.”

The SealSpotter portal was developed by Phillip Island Nature Parks’ researchers thanks to generous funding from the Penguin Foundation, and the first “Annual SealSpotter Challenge” is due to go live at 9.00am on Saturday, 8 June, coinciding with World Oceans Day.

ANOTHER WORTHWHILE “WORLD OCEANS DAY” [aka “UNHEALTHY OCEANS MEAN UNHEALTHY MARITIME WORLD”]

Dear ocean lovers & citizens of our Planet Earth! I am yet an unsung travel poet-writer and a retired medical doctor from Istanbul-Turkey. If everything goes as planned, on the 8th of June 2019, I will write a 3 page-article (as a Word format) in Turkish language about the vital importance of keeping our planet's oceans, seas and waterways clean & healthy enough in order to keep the important vitality of the world's maritime business (both passenger & cargo) going in a healthy & fruitful way without forgetting to emphasize the “GENDER EQUALITY” for the protection and restoration process of our priceless oceans which provide food, generate oxygen, regulate our climate and so much more. Then I will publish the related article in my weekly internet column (belonging to the renowned "LOJİPORT" website) on June 9th (just like each Sunday since November 2017). More determination & power to us all!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Dr. Güntürk Üstün
