Launch of ‘Restore our Ocean & Waters’ Mission Charter

The recently launched Mission Charter calls for joining efforts to achieve the three objectives of the Mission ‘Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030‘ to:

  • Protect and restore marine and freshwater ecosystems and biodiversity, in line with the EU Biodiversity Strategy 2030;
  • Prevent and eliminate pollution of our Ocean, seas and waters, in line with the EU Action Plan Towards Zero Pollution for Air, Water and Soil;
  • Make the sustainable blue economy carbon-neutral and circular, in line with the proposed European Climate Law and the holistic vision enshrined in the Sustainable Blue Economy Strategy.

The aim of this Charter is to establish a simple, inclusive and inspirational framework to enhance cooperation, align intents with other partners, mobilize resources and develop activities to deliver on the Mission objectives. This Charter is non-binding and open to any public or private interested parties.

You can endorse the Charter and submit relevant actions through a dedicated online platform throughout the duration of the Mission. Click here to find out more.
