Ocean Summit at Volvo Ocean Race


We are delighted to invite you to the Ocean Summit in Hong Kong on the 22nd January 2018

Volvo Ocean Race’s global platform presents a unique opportunity – and a clear responsibility – to join the race against plastic pollution.
Our series of seven Ocean Summits are held during the 2017-18 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race, sailing’s toughest around-the-world race and the ultimate test of a team in professional sport.

The Ocean Summits will bring together sport, science, government, NGOs and the private sector. Designed to generate discussion and create local relevance, we’re sending out a call-to-action, asking for commitment from government and industry to ensure Clean Seas for the future.

As there are a limited number of seats, please book yours as soon as possible.
