In the run-up to the Ocean Race next edition, which starts in Alicante in Autumn 2021, five events will be organized with five more delivered during the nine-month race period.

The Ocean Race is the ultimate round-the-world sailing event touching six continents over nine months, the objective of the Ocean Race Summit events is to bring together the world’s most relevant sustainability influencers, innovators and decision-makers to highlight the ocean health issues facing us, and showcase solutions aimed at accelerating ocean health restoration on a local, national and global scale.

On 20 September the first Ocean Race Summit event will take place in Genoa.

Amongst the issues being tackled are ocean plastic pollution, broader threats linked to climate change and the delivery of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) connected to ocean health.
Giulio Bonazzi, President and CEO of Aquafil, will be among the speakers talking about how ECONYL® turns ocean and landfill waste into new and beautiful products.
