The ocean covers more than 70% of the surface of our planet, yet it too often remains on the sidelines of major international and European agendas.

The ocean regulates the main elements of environmental balance - the climate in particular - and provides rich resources of all types. It is a major vehicle of economic exchange; an essential link between countries and human communities. Today, the ocean is threatened by many adversities such as climate change, pollution due to plastic, and, in particular, the overexploitation of marine resources.

To mobilise the international community and take concrete action to reduce these adverse effects on the ocean, the President of the French Republic has decided to organise a One Planet Summit dedicated to the Ocean - the "One Ocean Summit", from 9 to 11 February 2022, in Brest, France.
